– Tweet Only Relevant Links

LinkDifferent.netIt has happened to all of us – an actual attempt to break some news only ends up breaking everybody’s patience, because our sizzling scoop has already been mentioned a good couple of times before.

This happens in every context you could think of – the office you work at, your close circle of friends, your family… and it turns out that it also happens on the Twitterverse.

As a matter of fact, that must be the one situation where it happens more indiscriminately. After all, if you tweet a link everybody has already seen the repercussions are not comparable to actually making such a mistake in real life. When you are telling others orally you make an elaborate introduction, and dream up a joke or two to include as part of it. If you do it online, it is entirely different – you just click your mouse a few times here and there and that’s it. And on Twitter nobody can see you blush if you made a mistake.

Still, those who are concerned about getting on other people’s nerves could count on a service like this one. It lets you add a bookmarklet to your browser that will analyze any link that you want to share with your Twitter compadres. The analyzes takes a second, and the results are very clear – you get to realize exactly who has already seen the link you intend to share. In Their Own Words
