Ruminations on tech, the digital media, and some golf thrown in for good measure.

The Tweeter

leave a comment »

You knew this was coming, right?

I mean, you didn’t have to read the tea leaves or anything.  It was inevitable.

It was a Tweeting fait accompli.

I’m referring, of course, to the “TwitterPeek,” a mobile device dedicated exclusively to Tweeting.

According to the WSJ Venture Capital Dispatch blog, the TwitterPeek has all the same functionality of a desktop Twitter client: reading tweets, sending tweets, replying, retweeting and DMing – only now you could Tweet on the Go.

I was already Tweeting on the go myself, through my Blackberry Bold and using UberTwitter.

But for many of you who don’t have a mobile device…or for the completely Tweeting-Addicted…well, the TwitterPeek could just be the thing.

So what’s next?  The Facebook Status Tablet?  That’s right, you’ll never be without Facebook status updates again!

Me, I think I’ll pass, but the TwitterPeek is seemingly arriving at a serendipitous moment, just in time for Twitter Lists.

I built my first Twitter public list today (Turbo Digital), and though it can take a few minutes to pull one together, you can start to see both the immediate personal and public value of making your own Twitter list and checking it twice.
