Twitter Search

Twitter Search looks a bit like Google Search and it's just as easy to use. Twitter Search helps you filter all the real-time information coursing through its network.

You can track what everyone is saying about you, your favourite actors, brands, whatever you want. Oooh the possibilities...

Tweetmeme aggregates all the popular links on twitter to determine which links are most popular. Tweetmeme categorizes links into four categories - blogs, video, images and audio. It means you can find the most popular stories - and tweet about them too.

It's the Yellow Pages for Twitter. It's funny - there's a directory for everything on the internet. And now there's one specifically for Twitter too. grabs publicly available messages from Twitter. Then they analyse and categorise each user responsible for those messages into categories at It narrows your searching into specific niches where you can find who and what you are looking for. It also lists each result's most recent post, number of followers and a URL if there is one.

Twitterblogger rating: 6/10 (it's good, but directories are everywhere and there will be many more before long)

Tiny URL

You've probably seen this one on Twitter. By entering in a URL in the text field, tinyurl creates a tiny URL that will not break in email postings and never expires. The other (obvious) benefit is that you can fit really long URLs into your 140 characters.

Twitterblogger rating: 10/10 (where would we be without it? It also gets an extra for being the original URL shortener)

Tween Scan

I like. In the innovative world of Microblogging, Tweet Scan aims to organise it all. It lets you search Twitter for any keyword you choose.

You can search public messages and user profiles - and you can choose to get your Tweet Scan results by email and RSS.

A. Thing. Of. Beauty. I love this. Oh go on, just take a look. You have to really, it can't be explained. It's quirky, gimmicky and I love it. It's one twitter tool that I'll be using a lot.
