Ben Barren - Confessions of a Mad Man » a new twitter app a day keeps the wrestler not away.

a new twitter app a day keeps the wrestler not away.

So I’ve finally got The Wrestler (here’s 930meg screener version just join first totally safe y’all or if u want instant 1click gratification watch the webstream ere) and I’m going to have a lunchtime screening on the 24″ imac. I cant wait till I build the home entertainment system I was in the process of procuring at Aspendale, in which I bought a 120″ high quality white pull down screen (paid a couple hundred $ for a $1200 high end screen), which I was going to connect a Panasonic HD projector (bout $1600 on ebay new) plus a mac_mini and a cube speaker/receiver/hidden amp setup; Forget about your 3 X 30 inch monitors for 90″ of viewing or a 50-62″ macmini/ps3/media centre setup, this is 120 inches of internet connectivity for under $5k aussie/$3K US.

Still cant wait to do this, just dont have the $ or home. But it will happen. Especially now I have the software, just would need 500gig a month, and ability to quickly download 4-8gig movies + 1.2gig tv shows not the  700-1.4g meg xvid/dvd_scrnr movies/350 meg tv shows which is standard. And to think some people r already doing this using encrypted torrents and their own private VPN, kudos. Also 3 interesting twitter tools (as a twitter blog said today, there is a new twitter app of significance everyday, if not more) The first is kewl where u can setup a dashboard of search terms : Tweetgrid, in this case I’ve chosen a 6 box matrix of the best pictures of 2008.

Or you can stick with Tweetdeck, but I definitely prefer the layout of Tweetgrid, except it’s a web page not an air app.

Tweetdeck dat Multi-Column Tracker

Not counting tweetdeck, the 2nd ‘new’ twitter app of the day is the half day of caffeine and coding to deliver twitter search by authority; Twitority - culmination of a transnational french-silicon valley debate about the feature (twitter search by authority/influence - read Jeff Jarvis attention +  influence does not equal authority) necessity and ideal manifestation. There is definitely something here if influentials can be identified by keyword, object, company, product, etc.

The third is the one Dave Winer mentioned a few days ago : Tweetree.com, which seems to act like m.slandr.net does on mobile web, where embedded links such as twitpics + youtube vids are displayed inpage, and there is advanced threading. Nice but I don’t think i’d change from twhirl, which is my primary twitter viewing, altho i wish it incorporated some of the tweetdeck multi-column approach (or tweetdeck took some of the UI of twhirl, esp a smaller font already, damn tweetdeck why is your font so big and u make it so i need to use half a 24″ monitor to show a few columns, which kinda defeats the purpose)
