I think that’s what I’m going to call this tool a “Time Suck Portal” instead of monitter. It’s a free twitter tool that lets you see in real time what people are twittering about. Actually, let me rephrase that.
It’s a tool that lets you follow in real time what people on twitter are saying about a subject that you’re interested in. Well, actually, that doesn’t work well either.
Let me try this one more time… you know what, forget it. Just go to the site, type in a subject in the input boxes and sit back and watch what people on twitter are saying about that subject in real time. Just keep an eye on the time because you may end up spending an inordinate amount of time typing in subjects and watching people twitter about them.
I think the best use for the tool is to find other people that have similar interests to yours on twitter, but your mileage may vary.
The tool is named Monitter, so go check it out.
