Slices.Me slices and dices your Twitter stream for you

Slices.Me logo

Slices.Me, from One Louder the makers of TweetCaster, is a new way to interact with and discover sources for Twitter. As shown in the video below, it handles your existing multiple accounts while allowing you to find sources by category and tags. With the capability to sync across the mobile platforms and web interface, there is no need to worry about your iPad having a different configuration than the web or Android you carry.

I added my testing account and it automatically built a few slices for me based on who the test account follows.  I was able to see a tech, news and even business/money slice with a simple click. I was able to manage my followers and lists with ease.

What was not obvious at first was how to find the categories.  Clicking on a small guy that looked like he was hiking (on the upper right) brought up a carousel type display of categories and Twitter accounts underneath I could start following. Lists under the Entertainment category were all curated by OneLouder.

Clicking the search did not bring up my saved searches, which I would have liked.  A search does bring up people, lists and tweets with your term.  You can then click on a person and follow or add to a Slice.  I would have preferred to see these on the main listing so I did not have to enter into each person to see the tweets.  A simple popup of the most recent tweets from them would be helpful also. The same would go for adding and following lists.

A link was there for Stats that said Coming Soon but no more information on what they would provide. I also couldn’t see a way to add multiple Twitter accounts yet.

Overall a great alternative web interface for everyone to check out.  I already like TweetCaster on my Android.  I may have to switch over.
