THIS HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE BEST AND MOST HELPFUL twitter HOW-TO VIDEOS OUT THERE! SO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT, AND ENJOY!
Zadi, the girl on the video talks fast, so i transcribed most of the links and key points from the video in case you miss something:
api - application programming interface
Step 1 - You Gotta Find Peeps To Follow
twitterlocal.net - at twitter local you can search for tweets in your neighborthood. enter your zip code and a search radius- it'll give you a real time list of updates (tweets) near you.
crazybob.org/twubble- recommends new twitter buddies by scanning your followers' friends to see who you're missing
fu family - hit us up- Zadi, stevewoolf, rickrey, sarahatwood, annieisms, Pedal, danielmerlot
Step 2 - Searching and Tracking
search.twitter.com - uses the "surmised search engine" - real time search results for phrases and keywords happening on twitter.
use twitter's rss feed link button, favorite reader (like google.com/reader) or feedmyinbox.com - if you want to persistently track something like your name or other subjects
tweetscan.com - has it's own custom email delivery service and caches twitter updates beyond their lifespan on twitter.
Step 3 - Stay On Top of What's Buzzing in The Twittershpere
twitturly.com- looks sort of like digg, it scans the public timeline (on twitter) for tweets with urls, and pushes the most popular links to top of page.
twitscoop.com- instead of ranking urls, it scans every word on twitter and generates a real time list of tags weighted by popularity.
tweetmeme.com - categorizes themes into blog, video, and audio posts.
Step 4 - Desktop Applications
desktop aps - twhirl.org (for pc), and twitterific->iconfactory.com (for mac)
Step 5 - Tweet Your photos
Step 6 - Get Tweets on Your Cell
twitsay.com - records your voice, and transcribes tweets via your phone.
hahlo.com - for your iphone
m.twitter.com - a basic service from twitter that works better than their standard sms service.
