Today I’ve released the second version of ImportanTweet.com.
The site was first released about a couple of weeks ago in a very limited, invite only mode and a few lucky participants have gotten to use it and I have received some excellent feedback that to the greater part I’ve managed to incorporate in this release. Others will be added later as well as more features and improvements I already have in mind.
Let me start by saying that your feedback is crucial for the site to succeed so please keep it coming in any form you can. I can be contacted here through comments, on Twitter at @important_t_com and by email.
This new release is packed with new features, improvements and some bug fixes. Below is a list of the major ones to notice:
I am very happy to announce that today I’m officially making my project named ImportanTweet available on the web!
The idea behind ImportantTweet is to show the tweets that are important to you so if you follow a considerable number of accounts on Twitter and it becomes difficult to keep track and you feel like you miss on tweets you find interesting, IT is the tool for you.
As some of you know I’ve taken upon myself to try and publish a link to a poem i like per day on Twitter: #PoemOfTheDay.
Admittedly, I havent been able to keep it up everyday since I started but I did manage to share quite a few over the past few months.
I’d like to take the opportunity to collect some of my personal recent favorites in this post.
