TechCrunch post “5 Good Ways To Discover Twitter Applications” by Robin Wauters says:
“Twitter, runner-up for best overall startup and winner of the best startup founder(s) at the Crunchies 2008 awards ceremony last night, was without a doubt one of the most talked about web companies last year, and we don’t see that changing much in 2009…
The most interesting thing about Twitter, of course, is the number and quality of both web-based and desktop applications that make use of Twitter’s API and growing user base to create a better user experience or make it even more useful by adding features. So it’s a shame to see Twitter itself feature only 12 out of hundreds of tools.
So here are five good ways to keep abreast of the newest and best Twitter applications:
The Twitter Fan Wiki is where you’ll find most Twitter applications, and lets registered users add or edit entries. The wiki site has the most extensive list for sure, but only provides a one-line description without any visuals so it’s not the most fun to browse. Also, no RSS feed!
Twitdom is a new contender that bills itself as the Twitter Application Database. It’s still in beta but offers a smooth way of discovering new Twitter applications, sliced up in 5 categories and with a visual preview of what to expect. (RSS feed)
Twapps is similar to Twitdom but doesn’t have categories so it’s a little harder to find what you’re looking for. It currently lists only 57 applications but has admittedly only launched recently. (RSS feed)
