Cloudberry Twitter IE Plug-In: A short review

Filed under: Twitter,plugins — admin @ 8:15 pm

Two reviews in as many posts. This one in response to a request in a previous blog post about PockeTwit. Anyway, the nice and simple Cloudberry Twitter IE Plug-In:
-you’re surfing the web
-you see something you want to Tweet
-you highlight it
-you click ‘Tweet’ in the toolbar

-you have the opportunity to add other text
-you click ‘Tweet’ in pop-up window
-it’s sent to Twitter along with a link to the page
Simple.

Whilst it is currently only for Internet Explorer, a Firefox version should be on its way. My one real criticism of this simple and useful application is the lack of quotation marks. It’s an app all about quotations yet fails to highlight the fact the tweets are quotations. Quotation marks should be the default.

Link Analysis Firefox Plugin

Whilst I hate search engine optimisation, it doesn’t mean that they don’t occassionally come out with some useful tools. Search Engine Roundtable have just brought to my attention a Firefox PlugIn by Joost de Valk which provides a PageRank and the anchor text for each of the inlinks found through either Google Webmaster Tools, Yahoo Site Explorer, and Microsoft Webmaster.
