Those who've known me a long time probably won't be suprised that I've launched yet another website. Unlike my other web adventures, this one is a tool that uses data from the popular microblogging website Twitter.
TwitterSorter.com provides a sorting and list building ability not available with current technology.
Jay Lohmann CEO TagTeamCreative in Dallas and Seattle said of TwitterSorter.com
GENIUS! Really great application. We'll be using it tomorrow to quickly follow people who work in specific industries, in specific cities. Perfect for a network of local business directories like us! Let me
know your Twitter @ so I can follow you!
Again, nice job!
I was so excited that somebody "got it."
The idea for TwitterSorter came about as a result of my fascination for the time sucking blog and currently available tools i.e. TwitterKarma , DoesFollow , etc. As a mom entrepreneur I'm always checking out what other mompreneurs [@mommymillionair , @marketmommy , @smartmama ] are up too. I want to know who's following them, who they're following and where these tweeps are located. Before TwitterSorter.com that information was very difficult to come by.
The story of how I found a developer in India is equally interesting. The amount of available young programmers willing to work for $10 per hour is vast as the ocean. Finding one who is trusty worthy and conscientious about the work is a crap shoot.
TwitterSorter.com is lightning fast and requires no log in to perform the sorting function. However more complex features [in development] will require the user to log in with Twitter credentials.
Peformance and maintenance issues of TwitterSorter.com are still a concern. In the early hours of deployment a run away script crashed the server. Please pray for me in this area.
I'm not sure how much value TwitterSorter.com will have in my local community of Kennedale, TX where I'm publisher of the local newspaper . Most Twitter users in the area are teens who complain about their parents and going to school.
My hope is that other big city marketeers like Jay Lohmann will see the benefits and throw advertising dollars at me.
More features for TwitterSorter.com are currently in development.
