Another Twitter roundup special…
TweetChannel - A 3rd party service that offers channels for Twitter, pretty much the same concept as Jaiku, just add a hash before a word and it will display in a channel.
Next would be to follow a channel on Twitter…each channel has a feed, so I guess you could make a new Twitter account for a channel using Twitterfeed, and then follow that user.
A while ago I used my own method to create a Twitter channel for the word “electronica“, not so much a channel, it’s more a keyword thing…a channel is more purpose based where people are using a preceding symbol intentionally to get a tweet to display on a topic page. My channel is more keyword appearances, the good thing about it is you can follow the channel like a regular user, and my user channel does not require a hash symbol (this is good in a way as not all people are aware of TweetChannel).
Follow TweetChannel for the latest news…coming soon is private channels, and posting from TweetChannel.
PlusPlusbot - rate your tweets at the time of tweeting, just add a ++ (plusplus) or — (minus minus) after a word
eg. juanamolina++ is some cool folk electronica
Tweetl - a URL shortner for Twitter
@locals - like TweetChannels but based on location, get all Tweets from people in your location on one page (as long as they are all registered).
Firstly follow the user ‘locals’ in Twitter, then send your tweets to @locals. (they will go to the location you have in your Twiiter profile settings).
Subscribe to the RSS feed for your location to keep up with local tweets.
Twitter @replies update - your @reply stream contains all the tweets where people are explicitly tweeting you.
These people don’t have to be connected to you (follow/following), even if you don’t follow each other the tweet will appear in your @stream, but not your main stream.
Your main stream contains @reply tweets from people you follow, so if a person you follow is @replying to someone else it will also appear in your main stream.
Now there is a way to limit this where if someone you follow is @replying to someone you don’t follow, you can set the notifications so you ignore these tweets.
