We all know what Twitter is and what it does; it has exploded into popular culture. Twitter is absolutely everywhere these days and has become difficult to avoid. Networking sites like, Twitter and Facebook, have truly changed the way people communicate over the internet, allowing news and information to be instantaneous, constantly changing, and personalized. With sites like Twitter, we now can interact and contact just about anyone, including Al Gore, CNN, Oprah, or even, Lebron James, just to name a few. Initially, many web developers thought Twitter was too simple, but it is its simplicity that makes it so powerful, because it can be used by anyone and everyone.
Twitter gives us more power to interact with the world, and it is an incredible way to share the most up-to-date news and information, which is why it is so popular, even among web developers. However, Twitter is not perfect, and this is why Twitter applications have become so popular, because they tweak Twitter to make it that much better. Twitter applications are merely websites which complement Twitter and improve its usability. Here is a list of 20 Twitter applications, which I have encountered on the internet that I find useful. Please feel free to comment or contribute more applications to expand this list! Enjoy!
