New! Twitter Blocks

September 7, 2007

Another creative application from a Social Networking site, Twitter Blocks! Facebook led the way by opening up their back end to allow developers to add applications, small programs that provide functionality (or fun) for users.

In an email from founder Biz Stone I discovered that Twitter has launched a new application called Blocks. This application lets you see the recent ‘tweets’ from your community and their community. In this screenshot of my blocks, social media magnate (and very recently ex-Crayonista) CC Chapman has sent his morning tweets.

The inclusion of a Motorola Razr ad is an interesting way to monetize this powerful and growing application.
