Need Help Managing Your Twitter Account? Un-j.am it!

If you are a heavy Twitter user (like what I aspire to be) then you’ll find that your Twitter pipeline can get clogged very fast.  There are ways to divert the constant flow of information like using lists, groups, or searches all of which some with pros and cons.   Lists need regular updating as your network grows and unless you’re already using a third party provider you can’t save searches in Twitter.

As I was reading an article on tools to simplify your online life I came across a gem, Strawberryj.am.   It’s a web based program that organizes your tweets in order of what posts are mentioned the most.  For example, if a post is sent out by Mashable and 30 of your twitter followers share the article then it will show up in your Strawberryj.am feed as “popular”.  That way you’ll be able to tell what other people think is important industry news. Oh ya, and it’s free!

After spending a short time using the service I feel that this is more geared towards Twitter accounts with many followers.  I’m currently at about 100 followers which is nothing compared to most. My most mentioned post count is typically only at around five, so it might not be the best gauge for me.  I still think it’s a great way to find out about articles that might not be on my radar.  Strawberryj.am also has other features such as saved searches, tags, and lists.  I haven’t seen an option to add multiple accounts yet though.

What I’m also very excited about is their plans to integrate with Facebook in the future.  Facebook news can be just as hard to keep up with  as Twitter.  This will be a welcome addition when it’s up and running.

At the time that this article was posted Strawberryj.am was in beta.  You need an invite to join, but you can request one from their website.  Be patient.  It took me a few days to receive mine.
