UPDATE: TwitSnap beta testing is now open to the public, go to http://www.twitsnap.com to register!
TwitSnap is a FREE widget that automatically provides Twitter status preview of a user like this: @godie
Notice that I'm using the conventional reply-to prefix for Twitter and nothing else! The widget will automatically parse your page and look for the pattern, convert it into a link to user's profile on Twitter and then provides a preview of the user's most current status via a pop-up Dhtml box.
There are still some few things needed to be ironed out:
- Google Apps Engine where the app is hosted has a bandwidth limit; dear Google, care to donate more bandwidth to me? :D
- Twitter limits the number of requests per IP; I'm still trying to contact them on having the service get increased limit.
- I'm just piggybacking on my neighbors' WIFI; Ok this isn't really a good reason but I wish to thank her for sharing the Interner access which allowed me to work at at.
TwitSnap has been tested on only FireFox, Opera and IE.
