TwitteReader looks similar to Google Reader, where you can mark read/unread tweets.
You can already do this in Google Reader by subscribing to “you and your friends” timeline feed. And there is a FireFox greasemonkey feature where you can tweet each item.
Or better still another service is GTweet, which works with Google Reader by taking your “you and your friends” timeline feed and applying some mumbo jumbo to it. Then you grab that feed and subscribe to it in Google Reader. What it does is displays each item as a tweet, which includes an avatar, and a link to favourite and reply.
TwitteReader allows you to action items eg. retweet, reply…favourite, and direct message are missing. At the top of your screen you can send a tweet.
They also offer a desktop version.
TwitteReader has a blog so we hope to see more features announced.
- a subscription pane (a list of people you follow)
- tag these subscriptions (organise them into group streams)
- search in all subscriptions, and search within a tag (and be able to keep this as a saved search stream)
- filter out tweets, to only see tweets that have links
At the moment
When I’m on the web, I’m using PeopleBrowsr
- filter your stream by displaying only tweets that have links in them (Microplaza has created a memetracker from this feature along with retweets)
- create a search stream by searching your Twitter friend network
- create Group streams by tagging your friends (also create a search stream from a group stream)
All these have RSS feeds if you prefer to read in Google Reader.
Another tool on the block is Filttr…this too does group and search streams (and offers RSS feeds)…it also does lots of other filtering.
