Twimbler: Tumblelog for Your Twitter Links

Ucash.in: Turn Links into Cash

It’s rare that I get to write about two great services in a day, but after Mux, this seems to be the day. Recently launched Twimbler — which I came across through a fellow Twitter follower — is a new service that combines the idea of Tumblelogs (or Tumblr itself) with Twitter.

In their own words: Twimbler is tumble blog that gets updated via Twitter. The basic idea is that you can now manage a tumblelog (shameless-plug: like mine) extremely easily with Twitter with no registration, configuration, hassle, or even — to an extent — direct action.

The basic idea: post a Twitter message in the format of “#log: {http://example.com} {A short description or comment on the link}” (example: #log: http://twimbler.com OMG! I’m trying twimble! ftw) and it’s posted to your already existant, no-action-required Tumblelog at Twimbler at http://twimbler.com/{YOUR TWITTER NICK}. For example, see my “twimblelog” here.

The coolness of how smoothely and intuitively the service works is uncomparable to anything I have ever seen before. Sure, you can question its usefulness, you can question whether people would really like to have a tumblelog that works with Twitter, you can question the very point of a tumblelog, but something you cannot question is Twimbler itself — the way that it works, the way that it was built, the interaction process with Twitter, and its functionality.

The web is at a very exciting stage where services like Twimbler are able to come out of nowhere and offer a great service to users. How did they do it? I have no idea — perhaps a simple partnership with Twitter, perhaps the folks behind the service are from Twitter itself — but undoubtedly I have to say this one of the most creatively executed “mashup”-type ideas I have seen. Ok, enough geekxcitement for me. Back to real life.
