Tame – analyze, search and monitor your stream

Tame logo

Tame is a tool from Tazaldoo, in Berlin, that will allow you to view your Twitter timeline for important information you may have missed.  They went back five hours in my timeline to build the page. They give a simple overview of what Tame does right here:

It analyzes the last 24 hours of your timeline and crunches it down to a top 10 overview of the most relevant hashtags, tweeps and links.

Once you authenticate via oAuth it begins crunching and analyzing your timeline.  For me it seemed to take a while so after a few minutes I refreshed the page and everything was ready.  I am not sure if it finished at that very moment but I will bet you need to refresh the page manually.

Clicking a hashtag not only gave the tweet but a description of what the heck it possibly means via TagDef.  The hashtags were ranked numerically showing the most used first.  A good way to see what those you are following are talking about. You click the blue down arrow to go to the next tweet for all of these results I found later.

Clicking on a username brought up the most recent tweets from them.  You are able to reply and retweet from the interface so that makes it simple. The person that tweets the most seems to be first.  So be careful here if you follow a talker.  I wish they had a mute button to hide that one.

The far right column is a list of the current link.s  This saves time in scanning all the tweets for that content. It shows the number of time that link was shared (but only if the link is short.  If the link is long they are truncating early enough for you to see the number.

The search bar at the top is powerful and explores all of Twitter.  What I liked was the rankings of results and the help description of how to use the search even better.  I haven’t seen other sites give examples of tuning your searches.  Once again I entered a search term and then had to refresh the page to see the results.  All tests were done on Chrome.

Overall the UI is simple and clean.  you can currently only run one account at a time.  Also you can find your lists and saved searches in the upper right I discovered trying to log out.  There are no ads so I am unsure of long term monetization and strategy.  We hope they stick around and grow this some more.
