Flocking Me

Searching through Twitter can be a daunting task because there are just so many tweets out there that are waiting to be discovered. The volume of tweets has continued to increase dramatically, which is making it even harder to not become overwhelmed. Sometimes it’s helpful to search through the entire Twitter community, but other times you may just want to search through tweets that are generated by your own community. These are people that you’ve specifically chosen to follow and communicate with on Twitter, so their comments obviously matter to you. Flocking Me dials down the noise and helps you to focus on what your friends are saying.

With this service, the scope of your searches is confined to tweets from your friends, which helps you to keep up with what they’re talking about. Tweets can also be displayed on a map so that you can get a geographic feel for what’s going on. Updates are delivered to you live, and the trends enable you to see what subjects for discussion are popular with your group. Happy tweeting, folks.

It’s A Wonderful Flocking

You know how frustrating it is, right? You do a search on Twitter for something specific, and get a million results you don’t want to see. Heck, often the results may not even be necessarily what you’re looking for! There are times I want to do a search, and see what MY community has to say… not the entire world.

Enter Flocking.me, a new service that lets you perform Twitter searches, giving you only results from people you are following! Finally, I can find out what only the people I want to hear from are saying! It’s YOUR thoughts I want to hear. It’s YOUR ideas I want to share. Yes, sometimes it may be interesting to have a bajillion results when you’re looking for something. But for the most part, your group can give you the information you need much faster than if you had to sort through the masses.

Is this something you feel is going to help you in the long run when you’re looking for something? Being able to check out what’s going on in our community is vital to what I do, and services like this only make it that much easier for me!
