You cant win them all

May 6, 2007

New review up at TechCrunch covering Twitbin. Mixed results in terms of comments, some people love it, some think it shouldn’t have been reviewed.

I’m a conviction writer, if I write about something I’ll do so for two reasons: 1. because it’s topical, and in the case of TechCrunch because it’s in the scope of the sites coverage or 2. because I like it. The later is an interesting one because there’s a smorgasboard of Web 2.0 related products I could be covering: the number of clones and variations on a theme is insane. Of course the way things are covered is a little bit more formal at TC than here, so I couldn’t really say what I’m about to say now.

Twitbin is cool.

It’s not perfect (opening links on a new page is annoying) but I was borderline in terms of giving up on Twitter, I just didn’t have the time nor inclination to be continually flicking back and forwards to it, now it’s inline in Firefox (the 22″ monitor helps) it’s no longer a burden or pain to use.

  1. Twitter via Gtalk is far easier.

  2. Thanks so much for posting about us. I’m glad to hear your opinion. We are actually going to have Twitbin open links in a new tab instead of a new window. The users have spoken. I’m really glad you think it’s a cool application. We have already spent quite some time reviewing all the suggestions we’ve seen posted so taht the next version can be even easier to use and give a little more freedom as far as the user interface goes. If you have any more suggestions or comments on it, visit our blog and post a comment or email me directly.
    Thanks again!
