twit.io - from Matt Terenzio who created @locals (a location based twitter hack, see another below) comes another Twitter gem.
twit.io is called a social database, it’s kind of like channeling a tweet, maybe moreso a message board stream.
A bit like hashtags you can post to streams, but these are inhouse streams like: jobs, events, videos, location, and instead of using a symbol like #, you just use text. The awesome part is you can command search the database by tweeting.
What you have to do:
Follow the user Twitio
Send replies to @twitio to post to or search the database
- there are 3 things that have to appear in your tweet before the body of the msg (@twitio post channel)
eg. @twitio post event Meetup tonight at Arthur’s Tavern in NYC. Great Jazz. Starts at 8:30
…and to search, just replace the word “post” with “search”
eg. @twitio search videos mentos diet coke
You should receive a direct message back to your twitter user with some info on your search and a link to results.
TwitterWhere - not to be confused with another TwitterWhere which allows you to post your location, instead with Matt King’s TwitterWhere you can generate a feed that will update with Tweets from a geographic location. Great for a local timeline, or an event…there’s even a TwitterWhere desktop widget.
Here’s an RSS feed for Perth Tweets, graze it here:
Kwout - all in one simple image tool which also has a link to the webpage you got the image from.
1. hit the bookmarklet on a webpage
2. crop the image
3. embed the image widget into your blog post (private or public-has a link to a Kwout permalink)…you can also post it to Flickr and Tumblr.
ControlC - a web clipboard social network (install required), the difference is when you hit CTRLC, what you copied is stored at their website (private, public, encrypted)…log in anytime to find a list of stuff you have copied from the past (now that’s useful).
If it’s public, others can rate, and leave comments, add and msg friends, plus you have an RSS feed.
This last bit pushes blog posting to the extreme, because when you hit CTRLC it means you have just published, in fact your profile is like a blog…each post is time stamped, can have comments, can be rated, you can search archive also by date, and filter by type of item (text, link, image, video). And it’s not a standalone blog, you are in a social network.
Just imagine re-syndicating your CTRLC RSS feed into a blog like SuprGlu, or Tumblr or Jaiku or even Twitter (using Twitterfeed)…you would be publishing from the web or your desktop.
eg. when your in Word or Outlook just CTRL-C some text or an image, and presto, you have posted to your ControlC blog which in turn will re-syndicate the post to Twitter or Tumblr, etc…I HEART RSS.
