I’m Very Busy… Twitter for Busy People Wants to Help

01Jul09

Yes, we are all very busy these days.  And with each new day, there seems to be some application created to make our lives even more busy.  Maybe it’s just me, but I sometimes find Twitter actually makes me less productive.  One of the downsides of following a lot of people in twitter is that you sometimes waste lots of time just sifting through all of the tweets.

Twitter for Busy People wants to help make it simple to see what’s going on.  There is nothing to sign up for.  Just go to the home page and enter your Twitter name and you’ll see a listing icons from people you are following (up to 500).  Hover over an icon and you can see that person’s latest tweet.  You can even see an entire conversation thread.  Twitter for Busy People also offers a bookmarklet that will make it easy for you to check in on the latest updates.

I can’t say for sure this will save you time because I’m not a heavy Twitter user, but at first glance it does seem to streamline things a bit.

    Hi Maureen,

    Glenn here, author of twitterforbusypeople.com. This is a really clear and informative demo – very well done! Thanks so much for taking an interest in our web app!

    One thing you may not know that is kinda fun, is if you hold “shift” when hovering over your friends, you can see their pic fully enlarged. Try it!

    So, thanks again – maybe I will put up a link to this posting on the home page if you don’t mind.

    See you around!

    -Glenn
