Welcome to the Twitter-fan wiki!

 

Since the Twitter folks haven't put up a wiki yet, it seemed like a good idea to get one going out of the community.

 

Lately there's been a bunch of scripts and other cool ideas pushed forward and it's finally time that we had a place to bring them all together.

 

The wiki password is tweety.

 

What is Twitter?

 

Twitter is a way of life. It's living with a publicity policy. It's friends, Romans and country people the world over engaged in timely snippet conversations that fit into 140 character chunks.

 

Go sign up and see what this is all about. An interview with Obvious Corp.

Web Apps

 

  • 30 Boxes has tight Twitter integration. After adding Twitter to your Web Stuff, you can view twitters from you and friends and you can post directly to Twitter.
  • A Google Gadget for viewing and updating Twitter
  • AutoTwit -- schedule and automatically post to Twitter.
  • TwitterSearch -- Full text searching for the recent Twitter zeitgeist, complete with toy dude-heads. A must! Also maps posts via Twittermap!
  • Chris' Twitter Badge -- a simple four-line javascript badge that matches Twitter.com's color scheme. Code included.
  • TwitterBuzz -- shows what sites people are linking to in Twitter posts, with relative popularity of sites.

 

Mobile apps

 

  • Twapper from 30 Boxes is a WAP browser for Twitter with image support, so you can keep up with Twitter on your mobile without the constant barrage of SMS interruptions. More details on the 30 Boxes blog.
  • Jargong -- Jargong is a Java application for mobile phones with which you can update Twitter using a data connection, instead of using text messages. It can also be used to chat using MSN Messenger, AIM, ICQ or Jabber, access your flickr photostream, and check your Google Reader feeds.
  • WHERE -- WHERE is the first mobile GPS widget platform. Read here about WHERE GPS widgets running on your phone. GPS Twitter widget is one of GPS widgets available on where.com platform. It lets you attach your current GPS location to your tweets. Read this to see how it works (at the bottom of the post).
