Twitter and the world of micro-blogging is in its early days and we believe will become an influential messaging tool that will gain broad user and business adoption. It's power is in its ability to tap into and push short snippets of information into the public ether. As we mentioned in an early post, titled How to Get Your Twitter On, there are a bevy of new, useful Web 2.0 tools tailored around support the growing world of Twitterers, which is about 1 million. Here are a few more uber cool tools that we wanted to highlight. Summize: is a newly launched start-up that enables real-time Twitter searches that let you get a temperature check on what people are tweeting related to a particular topic. I was recently trying to find the latest information on the Florida brush fire that was rapidly moving toward my mom's house in Malabar. I tried to manually find more information about the fire in Twitter, but trying Summize I pulled up a rich list of updates. Here's more results we found on the big Santa Cruz County fire that broke out yesterday, which is just a stone's throw away from Silicon Valley. For Marketing & PR folks out there monitoring perceptions about a technology, product or company, check out Summize Labs which is a nifty feature that gives you an interesting real-time Twitter sentiment ranging from great to wretched.
Here's a cool new service for music called: Blip. Launched by San Francisco-based parent company Fuzz, the Blip service lets users search and hear song tracks and also share them with friends via Twitter. It's nice to see other startups innovating to enable Twitter to become more able to share rich media. Blip has a simple UI. Trying out the service, I was finally able to find the song in the recent Kia commercial that I like (Can't Get It Right Today – Joe Purdy).
