Ironically, it has managed to spawn more innovations and hype—clients, web applications, memes, contests, meetups—than any of the big, bloated social networks. This is interesting because Twitter is not just a “web application”, which, literally, is an application that exists on and uses the Web. It’s an activity taking on many different forms in scattered locations, whose very nature seems viral, and whose openness seems almost unprecedented.
That was taken from this fun and informative read, The Inspiration that is Twitter at Wisdump. The article doesn’t just mention what Twitter has inspired but shows ton of great links with snapshots of a good deal of them.
Links to Twitter inspired services, mashups, and even t-shirts abound in the article. Want to poll your friends? Find the hottest links shared on Twitter? See the latest memes? Find the top followers and followed folks? Then the links are here in this post.
All this goodness is well organized into groups, with pictures to highlight quite a few of the services. My favorite stuff is the Twitter related t-shirts. Now I’ve got to go buy some. Do you sell any?! Give us some links.
Give this great article a perusal and learn more about Twitter and all the things it’s spawned.
