Well.. I’ll tell you: Twitoaster is going to be improved with three major features and technical changes!
- Servers changes: Twitoaster is about to move to new and more powerful machines. This new system will be “connected” to Twitter though their Streaming API (aka Firehose), bringing the features listed below.
- Real Time Threading: This means no more “sync delays” as all Twitoaster accounts will be synced in real time with Twitter. I know a lot of bloggers using the Twitoaster WP Plugin were waiting for it, and I hope they’ll like it.
- ReTweet support: Twitoaster is automatically retrieving your replies, threading your conversations. It will also retrieve your ReTweets and include them in the conversation. Charts and Rankings will also display ReTweets, bringing another level of analysis to optimize the way you communicate with your followers.
All of this is now ready and currently being tested (thanks to all beta testers).
The launch date is planned for Friday the 15th of January 2009. If you want to try it before time and join the beta testers team, feel free to contact me!
Last – but not least – I wish you a happy new year and I hope you’re all enjoying your holidays!
