Twitter is one of the coolest Web services to be unleashed on the public in quite some time, and it’s replaced “real” blogging for a lot of people. Due to the availability of their API, developers have been able to build a number of interesting tools that tap into the Twitterverse, and since Twitter is such a simple concept at its core, it’s neat to see how it’s being expanded by outsiders. For example, have you ever heard someone say that they owe another person a beer? With Twitter and Foamee, you’ll be able to keep track of these serious verbal contracts.
Foamee may not be affiliated with Twitter, but the two services work together very well. By simply sending a message to the Foamee username that specifies the person and the reason for owing them a beer, the site will keep track of who you owe a beer and who owes you a beer. These beers can even be marked as being redeemed through the service, which is pretty fancy. This isn’t the most important thing to ever be developed on the Internet, but it doesn’t have to be, and I’m sure its uniqueness will draw people in. If that doesn’t work, then the awesome merchandise will.
