November 17, 2007 – 8:23 pm

Twitter is probably the best mini blogging tool / social networking / life update tool on the Internet right now and of the best place to check out what others are doing all over the world, in real time! (nearly).

Besides the normal Twitter web client, creative developers all around the world have created various Twitter related tools that you can use for free, thus increasing Twitter popularity to dizzying heights. Here is a list of 10 Twitter related applications that are odd but useful, based on my point of view.

  2. Thanks a lot for mentioning Tweet Scan here. Just a little update, we’ve made a small addition to Tweet Scan that lets users search from the search box in their browser. Take care.
