Our first afternoon session was “Killer Twitter Apps, Services and API Trends”. This was a really fascinating session, and I truly couldn’t take notes fast enough. Several apps developers presented on this panel and commented on what is going on now with Twitter and what is coming soon.
Brian Breslin was the first speaker and covered some of his favorite Twitter apps. Within WordPress, he uses:
- Twitter Tools
He uses TwitBin and PowerTwitter as well. He recommended TweetDeck and Seesmic Desktop for desktop tweeting. He also uses Twittercounter.com and Klout for measuring data and influence. SocialToo.com to weed out automated follows and TwitterMass.com allows you to find others similar to you and follow their followers.
Next up was Dan Zarrella who covered retweet API trends. He said that Twitter is slowly rolling out a retweet option in the web interface (Project Retweet).
