If you follow me on Twitter you'll probably know that I have a lot of followers ( 4000+ ) and you also probably know that's sh*t compared to other people that have millions and millions of followers.
Anyway, having a lot of followers is good but I think that if people follow me I should return them the favor and follow them back. So, yeah, I'm following 4000+ people!
But Twitter is supposed to be useful and not just a big fat piece of spam ( I bet you 5 euros that it will probably turn into one in the following years ) so that is why I like to filter my tweets to see only the ones that matter to me. Of course you could just search for @iphone or @mac but I don't really like that because some of those tweets might not interest me.
So, I use Filttr! This tool allows you to create an alias ( more like a group ) and then add the people you want to receive tweets from.
This tool is still in Beta and it's very slow, it has a few bugs and it takes a lot of memory and processing power because the page is very heavy ( for a webpage! duh! ).
Some other nice features include the conversation view, like Tweetie where you see the original tweet and the the replies, integration with IM and e-mail. It also had it's own client but they removed it because of bugs with the most recent twitter API.
By the time I made this post the login and registration system were down for some reason and they'll probably keep it down for some time, I hope they're actually doing something. That means you'll have to use OpenID.
NOTE: Jeez, Safari still works very bad with blogger! At least now I can check the blog scheme without crashing everything. Does google hate webkit?! Oh wait... they use it for Chrome, nevermind.
