Tech finds of the week: Tools for Twitter, WordPress, storage

Interesting technology tools and posts I came across this week.


A site that shows trending hashtags and allows searches to see how frequently hashtags you are interested in have appeared in the Twitter stream over the previous week.


Enter a hashtag on this this site and you can see recent tweets that contain that hashtag. It also gives a list of related hashtags. The service is broader than that, offering a social bookmarking service that the site says will automatically bookmark any site you send in your tweets. I found that service lacking, though.

A Beginner’s Guide to Twitter

A good primer from ReadWriteWeb. Thanks to @rikkiends for pointing it out.



Storify Plugin

Storify has been gaining popularity as a way to combine elements from social media posts into a story format. It just released an update to its WordPress plug-in, which allows creation of Storify stories from the dashboard.


Online storage


A DropBox-like site with 5 gigabytes of free storage. Via the Scout Report.
