KillerStartups – Just Like Whois For Twitter

Qwerly.comQwerly is a service that should have come along much sooner, as it addresses one of the major shortcomings of Twitter: the scant information that users can provide about themselves. That is patently evident when we compare Twitter with services such as Facebook, in which users can have multiple pages and links.

Qwerly offers a search tool that can generate a full profile for each and every twitterer that is looked up. That is, Qwerly creates a page in which all the different social profiles of those that you look up are displayed side by side. Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, and Delicious are some of the services that are taken into account.

All the information that is displayed on the site is actually public information. You could find it yourself by performing a Google or Bing search. Yet, if you look it up using Qwerly you will be saving yourself a lot of time, not to mention that you would be avoiding the hassle of doing manual comparisons – something that can lead to confusions and misunderstandings quite easily. In Their Own Words

“Qwerly is a whois for Twitter. For every Twitter user that is looked up on our site, we generate a simple profile with links to that person’s other profiles on sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr,, Delicious and many, many more.”
