  3. 3. If you’re like me, you find lots of great content online every day that ends up being fodder for Twitter. It can be hard to keep track of what you tweet much less the links you send out. Favoriting a link makes it easy to find later, but if you favorite a lot of links, it can be hard to find older links. If you want to tag your favorites, well forget that. Or how about searching other people’s favorites? Impossible at the moment. These frustrations sent me on a search for the best bookmarking Twitter tool. It turns out there are many more with a wider variety of features than I imagined. ©2009
  4. 4. Overview Criteria I sat down with my co-workers and created a wish-list of qualities that we as marketing people want in a Twitter bookmarking tool. As usual, all the tools have to be free and not require a download. Beyond that, we wanted to be able to: have an easy-to-use interface get the hang of it quickly send updates to Twitter and other sites easily configure it shorten URL´s, preferably with the ability to choose the URL shortening tool use analytics save links tag or categorize links link to other social media sites search through the collection bookmarks ©2009

  11. 11. Mister Wong Interface Pros Easy to share and save links. Lets you tag bookmarks Searchable database Cons Own tweets not visible in profile Bookmarking didn’t work when demoed. Rating ©2009
  12. 12. CONCLUSION This was a tough one to pick. Tweetmarks is great because if you already have a Delicious account, you don’t have to open another bookmarking account. However, Delicious lacks any way to share your bookmarks beyond its service. Sharein is also great. The analytics are beyond anything else I’ve seen but it doesn’t bring new content to you. My pick for this week’s winner is Yourversion. It imports your existing Delicious account (making Delicious redundant), serves up content to you that might be of interest and has a mobile interface. It’s got some great tools that other sites should add to their list of features. ©2009
