TwitKu.com – IM-ing gadget
TwitKu is an IM-ing gadget that gives you the option to maintain another account with Jaiku, a similar service, and monitor your TwitKu and Jaiku accounts on the same page with TwitKu´s web application. Once you have installed its program, your accounts are more manageable and more easily accessible in a number of ways.
For some examples, you can simultaneously post a single message to both accounts, click on the “Twitter” or “Jaiku” links next to the radio button to go to that site, click on the “Twitter” or “Jaiku” tabs to toggle between your user and public streams, hit “Restore Last Message” in order to place the text of the last posted message, see compact URLs (e.g., tinyurl.com, rurl.org, etc.) shown as their full original URL, turn URLs into clickable links, see your Flickr photo page links as a thumbnail, and see foreign characters.
TwitKu.com In Their Own Words
“TwitKu is a simple web app that lets you monitor your Twitter and Jaiku accounts on a single page. Most of the functionality of the respective sites are reproduced, but there are enhancements not offered on those sites like Flickr thumbnails based on links, auto-expand of “tinyurls,” and more.”
Why TwitKu.com It Might Be A Killer
A good option for those who already have Jaiku accounts and aren´t willing to drop them but want to use TwitKu´s features.
Some Questions About TwitKu.com
What if the other sites do the same thing, and suddenly everyone has accounts with all of the services? They need to be more differentiated in order to encourage people to choose favorites.
