I saw a post on Mixx yesterday; Digg considering adding Twitter updates, and thought I would write a nice list post. Digg should have added some sort of Twitter integration last year when they removed the shouting system and forced everyone to use Twitter instead.
Top ten social media sites that have Twitter integration:
10 Friend Feed Integrates everything, including Digg. This one is a given.
9 Facebook is another given and they’ve had a facebook app for Twitter for a long time now.
8 Vox even way way back when I posted it on Aug 12, 2007, I knew my blog needed Twitter Cowbell. Why doesn’t Digg have Twitter Cowbell?
7 Virb added a twitter importer on their latest update last year. Also note that the Virb layout and design are about ten times better than Digg.
5 Mashable has a handy RSS feed importer. With that you can add your tweets to your Mashable profile (if you have one).
4 MyBlogLog Even Yahoo’s MyBlogLog pulls in your tweets.
3 Mixx a direct Digg competitor has had twitter integration on profiles. Its not fully fleshed out but it displays my latest tweet on my public profile so its a win for me. Doesn’t allow for tweeting or reading from the site and the tweets are displayed backwards in the chatter section, but they have Twitter Cowbell and Digg does not.
2 StumbleUpon‘s su.pr is like bitly on steroids. It promotes, your blog, twitter and stumble upon profile (Being very social while doing it) Su.pr isn’t just a URL shortener; tweet interface, it lets you schedule tweets and neat stats with Retweet tracking and who liked it on StumbleUpon. Su.pr completely blows away the diggbar.
1 Myspace Yeah myspace has a Twitter app and its works well for what it is. It is a sad day when Myspace has a feature/app that Digg should have but doesn’t.
