Resources for Your Twitter/Jaiku Habit

June 7, 2007 by  

Okay, I’ve become addicted to Twitter and Jaiku. I like Twitter for the simplicity and the breadth of friends I have. I like Jaiku for the feed aggregation. Plus, I enjoy the convenience of publishing my presence from the desktop or my smart phone.

Here are some helpful resources to fuel your addiction (guess that makes me an enabler) …

  • “Refuse to choose!” is the motto for TwitKu. I learned about this from BerniesWorld. You can use TwitKu to monitor your Twitter and Jaiku accounts via a single Web page. Very convenient since there’s no software to install. They even have a mobile-friendly browser version.
  • There are a variety of add-ons for the Firefox Web Browser worth looking at. I like Twitbin.
  • Twitterrific is a desktop application for Mac OS X users that allows you to monitor and respond to your friends in a very elegant user interface. This is a must have for Mac owners.
  • Tweetr is a desktop application for either Windows or Mac users, similar to Twitterrific.
  • EmailTwitter allows you to send and receive by email on your phone, helping you avoid incurring SMS charges.

    Twitter is very simple. It’s basically an instant messenger away message in a web browser.

  2. There is also a list of 3rd-party Jaiku applications on our developer site. I’ve heard about quite a few new ones during the last couple of weeks: they will be added to the site as soon as their are published, and we probably move this information to our main site quite soon.

    BTW, since you are already using an old one, check out the new Jaiku badges 🙂

    Petteri, thanks for the suggestions and new information from Jaiku.
    By the way, the new Flash badges are nice, but it would be nice to have an option under 100 pixels in height.
