Class, the phenomena of Twitter is astonishing and perhaps a bit over the top, dontcha think? I've been collecting apps for it for some time. However, today I read that Mashable has published many of the same ones I've been collecting and even MORE!
However, you Blondalicious Teacher has some that NOT EVEN Mashable has discovered, and here's why:
they haven't been invented yet!
So I'm gonna reveal to you, my beloved and super delicious students, MY own Twitter apps:
Twitterfunk: a group for those that are plum twittered out
Twittermirror: for those who want to find someone that mirrors them EXACTLY
Twittercircle: those who like to f***with Twitter and post the exact same thing over and over and over and over.....
Twittermania: ok, we know you brush your teeth, take a s***, and so what????
Twitterfeel: for those you'd like to feel up in a sensitive, supportive fashion
Twitterguns: hey, we know you've got the testosterone. Your power shows. Trust me!
Twitter-xiety: a back-up Twitter when Twitter is down--handy for your freak-outs
TweetGrope: for those that feel the need to share a twit group grope
Titter-twitter: laughing behind your back twitter-hood--super secret and private group
Not to be confused with:
Tit-twitter: an alert for those who tweet about the mammary glands...better known as b**bs
Twitter-nonmyous: for burnt-out, ex Twitter-ers
Twebes: the cognoscenti of Twitter users
Twitter-gram: send an old-fashioned telegram to another Twitter user to blow their mind
Twit Tucks: don't even ask...simply use your intuition on this one
Class, as you well know I've been taking a prolonged vacation, but that doesn't mean I've been inactive. Oh no-- your blondalicious teacher has been researching and studying and burning the famous midnight oil...that is, when I'm not doing other naughty things.
And I'm back to share about my latest love. Maybe you'll love the tiny thing too.
What the Tiny URL does for me is a miracle! It shortens those horrible long, long addresses. And it does it all in a second! So instead of typing in those tedious story links oneself, all one does is copy and paste and voila--there is your link! And this link is so easy to copy into your Twitter updates or your Mixxsubmissions.
Oh, yes....I've also discovered Mixx and love it so much more than Digg for many reasons! One reason is that the ratio works for me: for every five stories you submit, the etiquette (or is it the rules?) is that you can then submit one of your very own, and thanks to the adorable and useful Tiny URL I've submitted four stories so far... so I'm nearly there.
If you're a Mixxer, I'm known as Kuanyin333 on Mixx.
Mixx gives Karma Points, and I've always liked the idea of karma....especially the kind of karma where the bad people get theirs! Yeh!
Your Mixx submissions can even go into your Twitter feed now. Or so Mixx announced, but I have yet to see my Mixx submissions appear in my Twitter. Grump!
Another new site I've discovered but haven't had much time to explore is Second Brain which is billing itself as "the first complete social aggregator". If you sign up now, you have a chance to win a MacBook Air and other cool prizes. So you know me, I signed up! Your ever hopeful teacher wants to finally win an online prize!
If I win it, I know whom I'm giving it to--someone that really needs it far more than me!
After all, I'm in love...and there's nothing that feels so good as spreading it around!
