To celebrate the fact that Twitter just raised another $35 million dollars of venture money last week, here’s a list of my 10 favourite Twitter apps/web apps/mashups:
- Power Twitter is a Firefox plug-in which enhances the Twitter Web interface, allowing users to upload pictures and search Twitter amongst other things.
- Mobypicture allows you to add pictures and other content from your mobile phone to Twitter and a range of other blogging and micro-blogging platforms. See also: Twitpic.
- Twitterfeed allows users to post any RSS feed to any Twitter account.
- Twittershare is a file-sharing application for Twitter! Though this being Twitter, the service has a 10 meg limit.
- Twittervision is a Googlemaps/Twitter mashup – posting tweets as they happen round the world. Not the most useful application ever, but it’s well-executed and strangely compelling.
- GPS Twit allows people to stalk you via Twitter.
- Badmovieclub is the ‘brainchild’ of Father Ted/IT Crowd writer Graham Linehan. The idea’s simple: everyone watches a bad movie at the same time and then Tweets about it as it’s playing. Synchronised slagging in other words.
- Cursebird streams all the swearing on Twitter. It also has trends, which reveal that fu*!, with over 50% of all swears, is by far the most popular curse amongst the potty-mouthed Twitterati.
- Snipt allows you to share code snippets via Twitter (cut and paste – it creates a tinyurl, badda bing, badda boom). Note: other code-sharing methods are available.
- Last but not least, Burp.fm, a Made by Many side project. Even less edifying than Cursebird.
If that’s not enough for you, then here’s a list of the top 100 Twitter apps based on the number of bookmarks each has on delicious.
