A Look at Tweetizen
For those of you living under a rock for the past couple years Twitter is all the rage; for what I have no idea though. As I've said previously, Twitter's pretty stupid, but fuck man, the clients like it so what are you gonna do.
As part of my research into all things Twitter I recently took a look at Tweetizen. According the Tweetizen website:
Tweetizen is a simple web-based tool designed to help you filter the daily influx of tweets, and easily find the ones that are relevant to you.
It's basically a site that uses the Twitter API to aggregate tags and keywords. Tweetizen doesn't have an API of it's own though I suspect this is would be a simple thing for them to implement; unless they're pussies that is.
Are you pussies Tweetizen?
<style type="text/css">@import "http://embed.tweetizen.com/embed.css";</style>
And embed the below somewhere in your site:
It looks just like every other widget they offer but you can style it using CSS if you wish. I imagine it would be incredibly tedious to really make the widget stand apart from the pack with just CSS but it's all they offer. They do provide a sample CSS file for usage along with instructions on the Tweetizen FAQ page to help the process along.
For me Tweetizen is a lose; but as mentioned above the clients love this shit so I'm in whether I like it or not.
