It’s been a year or so since the « Twitoaster project » has started. Thanks to your suggestions and your support, the « little threading tool » has turned into a much richer experience.
Analytics charts, statistics and rankings, Embeddable Widgets, a Conversational search engine… But also an Open API, which gave birth to a couple of nice plugins (WordPress, Blogger / iGoogle…)
I really had fun developing all of this and talking with you guys to improve Twitoaster in new and innovative ways. You’ve been more and more to use the service, it has received a very nice Press coverage, and it gave me the chance to meet and talk with so many interesting people!
The thing is I’ve also been talking with Twitter since mid-April (just after the Chirp conference, actually). Great discussions, Awesome team, and… So exciting projects! I can’t tell you more about that, but I guess you get the point: I’m now going to work at Twitter.
So what does that mean for Twitoaster? The service will keep running: the website, the API, the widgets, the plugins… Everything. But it shouldn’t evolve that much starting from now. I’m really sorry for those of you waiting for features we had planned to add, but I hope you’ll understand I’ll have to focus 100% on my new job.
I hope you enjoyed – and you’ll continue to enjoy – Twitoaster as much as I did. Thanks again to all of you! That was really fun, and it’s going to be awesome at Twitter :)
