Thought I would list out a few Twitter apps for your Windows Mobile phone.  I personally use Twobile the most.  Each application is obviously similar, being that they mostly do the same things.  Enjoy…

Twitter Feature Requests

Red Meat Twitter

Besides more stability and uptime in the Twitter service, these are some of the features that I _REALLY_ need built into Twitter:

  • Web interface to “track” option. This would make it much easier to manage sms notifications to my phone.
  • Increased API access limit. 20 per hour is way too low. I would probably be satisfied with 30-60 per hour. 60 would be best.
  • Ability to Mass-block people from the web interface.
  • Historical Direct messages sent or threading of direct message conversations.
  • Shorter URL service. TinyURL is great, but I’ve seen shorter.

I do not think the above requests would alter the way Twitter functions as a whole, but would enhance its overall functionality. What features or enhancements would you like to see added added to Twitter?

Many of you have developed a fondness for Twitter, myself included. I’ve found it to be an invaluable tool. I use twitter to keep in touch with friends both near and far, get the latest news and events, broadcast my existence and drive traffic to content that I publish. I find that many people don’t understand Twitter, or how it can be used for your benefit. It is tough to quantify how and why someone should use it, since everyone wants to get something different out of it. All I can say to that is that there is a place in your life for Twitter, and with a little experimentation you will find its benefits.

For this article I want to focus on “Advanced Twitter Techniques and Tools”. Once you’ve become familiar and comfortable with using Twitter, you may want to extend the functionality and get more out of it.

There have been quite a few people bashing Twitter over the past few months. While I do find that the “public” time-line traffic is mostly a bunch of garbage, I think many people are missing one of the major points of Twitter. Within a “real life” social network, Twitter can be a very useful tool to coordinate and mass update people in a group. Friends can form a network within Twitter (by subscribing to eachother) and subscribe to SMS updates via their cell phones. If a group is networked via Twitter the members may send updates to the entire network via their cell phones. This feature can come in handy when making plans that involve large groups of people. Having an SMS conversation to coordinate groups of people becomes very easy.

My favorite content aggregation and digital identity management service,, has updated to V2. They have tweaked the layout and presentation of information regarding your profile and site navigation. The site has a more interactive feel to it. For those who haven’t checked out Ziki before, or were unsatisfied with the previous version, give V2 a spin. Please refer to my previous post on manging your digital identity with Ziki for more information. As always I wish continued success to the Ziki Team, and other small teams working to forge the next generation of the internet. Good Work.

There is a lot of crap in the world of the web right now.  I’ve tested hundreds of web sites in the past few years so I know what works and what doesn’t.  I’m always on the lookout for the next best thing.  The following 50 websites are truly useful.  They include web applications, productivity tools, trusted retailers, fun stuff, and useful resources for information.  In no way is this meant to be a complete listing of all the good websites on the web right now, but at least a cross section of some of the quality websites available right now that I have reviewed.  So give some of these websites a spin.  If you like what you see, help spread the w0rd.  Trust me, I’m a expert.  Please feel free to post your own favorite useful websites in the comments at the bottom of this post and maybe they will be included in the next roundup. 

And now, in no particular order:

Ziki isn’t just for the French! In these times of google and everything being linked and searchable, you need to give some thought as to how your identity is represented on the Internet. Potential employers, friends, family, and the occasional stalker are all searching for you on the internet. You should be careful when posting personal information, but if you are a freelance consultant you live and die by your reputation and your name. Ziki is a handy website that allows you to aggregate all of the data you already produce into one central location. You can manage all your social network files, bookmarks, and photos. You choose what you want presented when people search for you. If you don’t want your mom to see your drunken bar photos, don’t add them to your Ziki.
