Twitter Tweets During Jon and Kate Plus 8

Verizon Fios Twitter Widget Displays Tweets on TV During Shows


This is a picture of my TV with the Fios Twitter Widget on during Jon and Kate plus 8.

Notice the Tweets on the right.  I assume the names to the right of the profile images are twitter account names.

DIY Twitter Host Your Own Twitter Clone Micro Blogging Service

Twitter Clone Code & Services For Your Site

Happy Fav Five Friday!

Do you love twitter, yammer, & other microblogging services?  Would you like to expand your communication channels?  I believe we need to communicate with people where they are and twitter is a very good place to build relationships with people.  You and your team may not always have access to public services like twitter or yammer.  You may be thinking about adding a micro-blogging service to your Enterprise 2.0 platform.  There are several twitter clones across the internet.  I believe most of these clones were created because of the huge success of Twitter.  I love twitter and their API has allowed many creative people to create some amazing applications for twitter to use on your desktop, iPhone, & other devices.
