Twitter Plus Digg Makes Dwigger, and it Tastes Great!
September 13, 2008 - 3:22 pm PDT - by Paul Glazowski 3 Comments
Way back in early July, we made note of a little video aggregation engine called ScrapeUp, an offshoot of VideoSift. It turns out both are still alive and kicking. The news today is that the folks who brought you those services are out with another public beta. It’s name is Dwigger. And while it doesn’t quite roll of the tongue, it is for sure an interesting bit of kit. Twitter feeds plus threaded replies plus voting. It’s Twitter, Diggnified.
Moving quickly past the terrible Diggnified coinage that is mine and mine alone, Dwigger is, in short, both a useful and playful application. How it operates: You can paste a pre-published Twitter message URL and submit it to Dwigger, to be voted and commented on. You can also write a fresh post directly within Dwigger, 140 characters long. And if you want to write items exclusive to Dwigger, you may add info as needed. Just keep in mind the character limit, which carries across the various post options. Also, if you happen to be in the city of Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York or London, you can designate your message like so. If only just for kicks.
In addition to the core features, Dwigger has dressed its front page with top weekly posts, popular people, a “Zeit Cloud,” a subscription to the feed, and more. There also is a timeline for a strict clockwork view of activity, in case you don’t want to pull from the RSS flow.
So what do you think about this one????
