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:
Now it is possible to switch from the Important Tweets mode to Chronological mode so you can see tweets on your home timeline just like on Twitter or in your preferred client (thanks @nunolinhares). Simply click on the clock tab at the top of the column:
From now on the site will automatically refresh the stream every once in a while. This can be managed through the settings dialog which you see when you right-click on the refresh button in the top panel or by tapping and holding the button on touch devices (hold until the dialog is shown):
You can turn off the auto refresh completely or set the interval you prefer (between 30 and 999 seconds).
An important feature, especially if you’re on a public or shared computer, the Sign Out button will ensure that a re-login is necessary before being able to use the site on that device again:
Invite a Friend
Now that the site has been running for a little while with no major problems I believe its time more users should get to use and enjoy it, therefore the first users that are already invited will be able to invite a few friends themselves. Those friends will be able to invite more friends of their own. If you do have the option to invite people please do so for the site to get more recognition and continue to grow:
The new release contains many more improvements such as performance tuning and additional logic for the relevancy engine so hopefully you should be seeing even better results.
In the meantime, if you’re an invited user go ahead and continue using the site and keep up the feedback communication. If you haven’t received an invite and would like one just let me know and i’ll send it.
You can keep up with the site on the Twitter account: @important_t_com.
