Destroy Twitter – Adobe AIR Client for Twitter
DestroyTwitter is a compact though robust Twitter application built to run on Mac, Windows, and Linux using Adobe AIR. It consists of a series of canvases that constantly update to keep tweets up-to-date using notifications that appear when a new tweet arrives. DestroyTwitter uses a minimal amount of memory compared to its AIR-based alternatives without sacrificing functionality and performance. As a result, it can easily run in the background as an automated process.
Twitter Charma – Bulk Follow and Unfollow
Basically, it’s a Flash application that fetches your friends and followers from Twitter when you click the “Whack!” button, then displays them for you, letting you quickly paginate through them. By default, the list contains all your friends and followers and is sorted by last update, showing those who most recently updated first.
You can sort the list alphabetically either ascending or descending by Twitter ID. You can filter the list in several ways: only friends or only followers, all friends or all followers, and mutual friends.
OpenZap – Discover and vote for Everything!
Openzap is a space to discover new sites, blogs, videos and live events that are generously recommended by people on social networks.
The Openzap engine (cf. fig. 1) constantly listens to what people say online, picks the coolest recommendations and then lets everyone vote for the best.
There are dozens of new awesome links being recommended every second online, yet most of them remain unnoticed.
Openzap started from the idea that anyone should be able to get a red-hot list of recommended links and to openly take part in the selection process, without necessarily having to register to a service or build an online reputation to be heard.
Awe.sm – Share, track and Learn!
Bit.ly – Best URL shortener around
bit.ly is also integrated into several popular third-party tools such as Tweetdeck. A more full list of third party tools can be found on the bit.ly blog. Unique user-level and aggregate links are created, allowing users to view complete, real-time traffic and referrer data, as well as location and metadata. Tracking stats are available after users shorten their long links with bit.ly by clicking on the “Info+” link on bit.ly, or just adding a “+” sign to the end of any bit.ly link (for example, http://bit.ly/n0og+).
