Twitter Curator Demo

I get so fed up with how YouTube mangles the screen recordings of QuickTime that I purchased Screenflow. I wanted to show off my specialized Twitter search tool that I’m working on besides of my regular projects. A “Hobby” if you will.

I would very much appreciate if you would take a few minutes to watch it and then let me hear your thoughts. If you have some ideas for improvements then don’t hesitate to let me know.


Primarily this is to make it faster to curate Tweets related to iOS and OS X jobs. The ideas is that you will be able to combine multiple searches and then have powerful filters to whittle down the results to a manageable size. Right now you can filter by user, linked domain and also restrict to certain languages as reported by the language ISO code.

Let me know if this is the sort of research/curation tool that you would buy in addition to your favorite Twitter client. It’s not supposed to replace any of these, but rather supplement for situations where you want to filter the world of Twitter for business or pleasure.

  1. No wonder you have very few tweets for your english-only filter, in your video demo: you entered the word “en” as a keyword instead of just adding it to the title 🙂

  2. So far, I like what I see. Couple of suggestions for you
    – the language filter was nice. How about having an (anti) filter that allows me to filter out the languages I select? For example, even though I only understand English, I might want to set up a channel (?) that only displays the tweets in that were not in English.
    – the block is a great idea but what if I wanted to see how many posts (say from lnkd.in) were blocked? As part of my research, I would want to actually scan through them. I think you called these sub-channels. Most of the time, I don’t want to see that crap, but once in awhile I will want to go walk through them. Also, a count by day (or some time frame) might also be nice.
