Twitter has revolutionized the way many people world-wide keep in touch with what’s happening.

It allows a backup of all of your tweets (with quick and easy access), and management of trending topics in different timelines. It promises to enhance the Twitter experience for all users, but should be particularly effective for journalists and/or community managers, who quickly need to review past tweets and related links. Amazingly you can search on a topic you’ve twitted several times, and then publish again as a linked-list. It’s getting rave reviews from power users, and should be something any serious user of Twitter should check out.

Last example in this article will be Zyncro, who I featured in this article “Spanish start-ups to watch in 2012” They have added to their already great product range, by introducing an automatic translator. It allows the user to translate messages and comments on their wall with a simple click, and is powered by the Bing translation engine from Microsoft.
