More than a calendar of your posts, but an actual horizontal line where you could choose an hour, 6 hours, 12 hours, a day, 2 days, 3 days, a week, etc…Each post in your timeline is an icon, just hover over it to see the post. A timeline for your posts including your friends posts would be awesome.
MyTimelines is a start, here is an example on the sidebar of this blog.
Enter your Twitter feed into MyTimeLines and create a widget, only if you could drop it into your Twitter template.
This way you can navigate your Twitter posts by a visual timeline, which also shows how heavy you posted on a given day using vertical bars.
MyTimelines has come from the help of SIMILE Timeline, check out the example of the JFK Assassination. Imagine you could generate a timeline like this where it would chart you and your friends postings (time on the x-axis, and people on the y-axis)
I’m really interested in stats for my Twitter posts, just like the stats for my RSS reading with Google Reader.
As I mentioned in my past post, I’d like to cut a section out of this timeline or zoom in to mark an event that started from Time A to Time B. I’d like this to have permalinks, this way I can go to my Twitter sidebar and click on my day at the Zoo, and see the vertical stream of posts from Time A to Time B, and also a horizonal timeline view…adding pictures would be the next step, ie. MMS twitterings.
Check out my post for an explanation of these two features.
I like both these features, but what I’m interested in most is applying an episode to a Twitter, kind of like a category. For each post you may choose to assign an episode if you like eg. my 5 hour walk home. On each post you can see a timeline of all the posts in that episode, and click on them to read them. All these episodes are features on the sidebar of your Twitter…so they are like categories, but of a different context.
If we bring Timelines into it, these posts within my 5 hour walk home episode, can also be part of many Timelines, such as “living in my house in the hills”, “working with this company”, “playing with this band”, etc…
