Attention

25 03 2013

I found myself in a situation where a friend was a bit miffed with me, not seeing their tweets on twitter.

Please understand that I receive new tweets at the rate of about one every two seconds, from friends and people or organisations which I follow.

Unless the tweets are directed at me, there is a possibility that I may miss them, particularly if they are posted during the time I’m asleep or doing something which doesn’t require a computer.

I really do want to stay in the loop, particularly when it involves friends.

So please tap me on the shoulder if you want my attention, I really don’t want to miss the important stuff either.

Thanks.

Twindex

I have an idea for a social networking app.

If you have a lot of followers, it’s sometimes quite difficult to remember who does what, or who is interested in a thing.

It would be nice if there was an app which would connect to Twitter, Facebook, G+ etc and collect a list of the people we follow.

So now if Jan tells you that her Aunt is sick, you can make a note of it within the app.

Then when you have that feeling of uncertainty, Did Jan say Mum, Sister or Aunt?, You can verify it by clicking on Jans avatar in the app and looking at your notes.

Perhaps there was someone you blocked on Twitter ages ago, and you can’t remember why, just look at your notes.

Maybe you have a story which may be of interest to the media in Perth, a quick search may show that one of your followers works for ABC radio in Perth.

Yes it’s the Pokedex for Twitter, well kind of.

Thoughts?
