flush the unfollowers | Many users on Twitter feel that if a user does not follow them back, it's somehow insulting. This utility is designed to 'teach those users a lesson by unfollowing them' with just a few clicks.
Tweepi's Geeky Flush is a simple utility for quickly spotting tweeps that you follow but do not follow you back.
Reciprocate : It takes a really long time to find all the users you're not following on Twitter and then following each one back individually! This tool helps you find all the users that follow you, but you do not follow back, so that you can follow them back with a click of a button.
Cleanup the inactives : So, you're following more than a hundred people on Twitter. You must have noticed that many of these users do not engage in conversations, never retweet anybody, or simply just ramble about nonsense stuff all day long (no links to useful content whatsoever!). You can use Tweepi's geeky cleanup tool to filter these people out and unfollow them. Geeky Clean-up enables you to filter out those inactive and unwanted tweeps by letting you check out their details and decide for yourself
Force to unfollow you NEW : Undesirable people are following you? Nasty avatars appearing on your 'Followers' list? You can use Tweepi's Force Unfollow tool to filter these people out and force them to unfollow you.
Twitter: A Cultural Guidebook http://kerileebeasley.com/2013/01/24/twitter-a-cultural-guidebook/ Twitter: A Cultural Guidebook
An iBook aimed to help educators get started with using Twitter for Professional Development.
We built on the work of Rodd Lucier and his Seven Degrees of Connectedness, which we felt accurately described the stages one goes through when developing an online PLN with Twitter.
Well, we are FINALLY ready to share what we have. We are going through the process of publishing to the iBooks Store, but in the meantime are happy to share it with you via this link. http://db.tt/8DeB5kgt
The one million tweet map http://onemilliontweetmap.com/ The one million tweet map
This page maps the last geolocalized tweets delivered by the twitter stream API.
Map data is updated in real-time - YES - IN REAL-TIME - and we keep "only" the last one million tweets.
Each second, about twenty new tweets are added (and the twenty oldest tweets are removed to keep the same number of points on the map).
We limited this to keep our servers calm :) but we can do higher rate.
Play with filters and check the nice heatmap rendering
We hope you have fun with it.

HootCourse http://hootcourse.com A HootCourse is an online classroom. And then some.
Instead of cumbersome forums or complicated lesson-plan formats, HootCourse uses a combination of the most popular social networks and blogging platforms to provide a new type of online classroom.
HootCourses are built on tweets and status updates in real-time.
There's no particular structure to them, at least no more than a classroom with chairs and a blackboard; they're a simple construct that lets a teacher and pupil interact.
Most online learning solutions have the same problem. They try to be a virtual teacher instead of a virtual classroom.
HootCourse sticks solely to the role of classroom. It's a virtual environment built to facilitate the free-flowing dialogue of an educational setting. Like a real-world classroom, it leaves teaching materials and format to the teacher.
Students and teachers can sign in with either Facebook or Twitter.
