TweetUp is a company you may or may not have heard of, that takes the stream from Twitter Search and attempts to filter out the “noise” with algorithms ” based on quality, relevance, and influence of tweets and tweeters, combined with a bid-based marketplace”. They have also acquired popurls.com, a social network and news aggregation site. So what does that mean for the end Android user? Well, look for a revamped Twidroid application, to be renamed Twidroyd (to avoid trademark infringement), with better search features, as well as mass distribution by preloading Twidroyd on new hardware. Apparently the deals are already in place.
Just over four months ago, at Chirp , our Twitter developer conference, I talked about how "Twitter is too hard" and what we're doing to address that. One major area of difficulty I highlighted was getting Twitter on your phone. We did iPhone user tests and confirmed that even though there was a plethora of third-party Twitter apps, people were having trouble finding and selecting one because none were called “Twitter.” This kept them from using Twitter at all. For this reason, we acquired Tweetie and turned it into Twitter for iPhone , complete with a new user sign-up experience. Mobile apps – Everywhere We quickly understood that we were doing users a disservice by not having a great client on each of the major mobile platforms.
