TWAction – turning tweets into actions

“œtwaction is a simple and useless, but fun, tool that turns tweets into action“

Tyler Reed launched a Twitter api application today called TWAction. Like SuperPoke for Facebook, TWAction can be used to send a variety of actions to your Twitter friends through any Twitter client. Your actions can be anything from giving your friends something to a Facebook style poke, all featured in a public stream on the homepage. Also placed on the homepage are two flash charts showing recent and most popular TW-Actions. Tyler managed to code the application in less than 72 hours and went from alpha release to “˜launch‘ in one day. I asked him some questions about TWAction –
Why did you create it?

Just to mess around with the Twitter API. It‘s given me a lot of ideas to create useful applications build on the Twitter API in the future.

What‘s next for TWAction?

It will be updated continiously throughout the week.. we‘re going to focus on intelligent actions and statistics “¦

A list of all the Twitter apps can be found here.
