Tweetmeme – is it worth your time?

I am looking at tweetmeme.com. A twitter.com tracker. 1? – what exactly is the point of a twitter tracker? By the way, there are a lot of them out there (just keep scrolling).

I mean, you see on tweetmeme.com what you see on twitter.com. The only useful functionality, I see, is its ability to sort content in categories: all, blogs, images, video and audio. It also takes and groups twittes, which are mentioning the same content. Personally, I am not obsessed with twitter to the point of constantly twittering, or having to know who’s doing what and what type of content people are relating to. But, I do like the idea/concept of micro-blogging, a lot. Micro-blogging is a cool idea, because it makes possible to blog quickly and in short blurbs without having to bother with all of the additional steps one needs to take to create a standard blog entry. On top of that, with tools like Alex King‘s Twitter Tools WordPress plugin, at the end of the day you can automatically make a “standard” post to your blog with all of the twittes from the day.

I am sure that in the near future, with the next or after next upgrades of the twitter platform, we will see the ability to group/sort tweets by content type. This will return a lot users back to twitter.com, making sites like tweetmeme.com useless. For now, if you are board and looking for random thoughts and content from people you don’t even know, check out tweetmeme.com.
