TwitIQ – smarter Twitter via a web interface

TwitIQ snuck up through a referrer that was in Spanish back to us here at EverythingTwitter.  Anything that makes us look smarter we want to see.   What I saw was an alternate web interface.  They add in some cool features they highlight themselves:

– Full Twitter View/Update features
– Keyword & Topic Insight into Tweets
– Filters for Tweet streams
– User Profiles with Keyword & Topic Insight
– Integrated Twitter and Blog/News Search
– Support for Multiple Twitter accounts

You do log in with your Twitter username and password (no OAuth yet), so the normal precautions apply.  I went ahead and logged in for you as usual.

Right away I liked what I saw.  Conversations were thrown together to see easy threading.  A tag cloud on the right.  Hot retweets of some recent time a bit farther down.

I can view:

  • All tweets
  • conversations
  • mentions of me
  • retweets – shows retweets from anyone you follow, not of your tweets
  • questions – interesting as it pulls those you follow that ask questions
  • channels
  • URL’s – shows tweets with urls included
  • hot hashtag topics

I am finding little things here and there as I spend more time in the client now.  it basically overlays your page on Twitter so you see your own background behind it.  There is a search ability in the upper right, a simple search, not advanced.

Just before I hit publish I found that and other shortening URL’s are expanded for you in a lower window to show you where you are headed or to click direct.  Very nice.

He has been on this world before and seems to understand slippers and a fine cigar. Mind you that is him in the chair and not me. A ninja death cat. I only see her when she strikes Music: Non-stop.

I am a self-proclaimed MP3 fiend, to which I have tried rehab 4 billion times to no avail. Now what kind of music you ask? I will never tell.
