A Fancier Twitter Timeline

Published on Sep 25, 2012 by Jamie Munro

I truly enjoy the finer things in life.  For example, if I'm going to eat a steak I don't want some fatty low grade piece of meat.  I would much rather (in this case, spend the additional money) to get an AAA grade of meat.  The taste is worth it.

The same is true with development; the Twitter Timeline is "nice", but I personally don't want a linear, scrollable representation of my Tweets!  I want the AAA grade where in this case it just takes a little bit more time instead of money…  As you can see above, my Tweets are sliding in and out every 7.5 seconds.  Once it cycles through my latest 10, it restarts again.

Twitter, are you taking advantage yet?

Published on Jun 29, 2009 by Jamie Munro

I’m sure you are well aware of Twitter by now.  If you are not, perhaps you should crawl out of the hole in the crowd and begin checking out the latest fad on the Internet!  People are absolutely obsessed with Twitter right now.  There are a million sites out there on how to make money on Twitter, how to find followers on Twitter, etc…

Over the past two months I have been receiving some traffic from Twitter.  Nothing major, just a few visits a day here and there, so it never really caught my attention.  At work, my boss wants to jump on the band wagon with Twitter and check it out and see what we can do.  Being a web development firm it’s important to be able to develop in the various API’s for the hot trends, e.g. iPhone, Blackberry, Facebook, Twitter, etc…

So, I began looking into it a bit more.  I signed up for my blog; you can follow me here if you like: http://twitter.com/endyourif
