Experiments: Tweetboard


This page provides access to an experiment with the Tweetboard service.


Tweetboard was described in a blog post entitled Tweetboard Launches Twitter Client And URL Shortener on 23 September 2009. The service "you create a Twitter-powered forum on any site."

The Tweetboard home pages states that "Tweetboard is a fun and engaging micro-forum type application for your website. It pulls your Twitter stream in near real-time (max 1 min delay), reformatting tweets into threaded conversations with unlimited nesting. Conversations that spun off the original conversation are also threaded in-line, giving your site visitors full perspective of what's being discussed".


This page has been crreated in order to test out this service and to explore possible uses for the service. If you would like to join in the experiment, please click on the "Tweets" tab.

Note that the threading functionality provides a new feature which is not available in many Twitter clients.
