Twitoaster is a Twitter web application that threads and archives users conversations in real time. The service is often used by journalists, bloggers or companies who need to collect, organize and keep a track of their Twitter mentions. For example: David Pogue, Robert Scoble, Google Enterprise...
The service starts in early 2009 as an experimental tool helping his creator, Arnaud Meunier, to handle efficiently his Twitter conversations. It is then quickly brought to ReadWriteWeb’s attention as a solution for gathering replies to their poll tweets. But the service only become widely known when the New York Times columnist David Pogue uses it to compile tweets for his book: The world according to Twitter.
In september 2009, Mashable and Microsoft Bizspark showcase Twitoaster as a promising new software company in their Spark of Genius series: The combination of search, archiving, analytics and visual way of better following conversation threads makes Twitoaster a great tool for any Twitter user’s toolbox.
Twitoaster groups replies and retweets with the tweets that inspired them, displaying Threaded discussions rather than disjointed tweets. All these conversations are archived and indexed in a conversational search engine. The service also provides analytics and statistics, showing for example, how many replies a Twitter member is generating and what day of the week, or time of day, seems to produce the most replies.
Twitoaster also provides an open API that allows third party application (websites, widgets...) to use its datas and services.
