By Jennifer Van Grove2009-01-01 20:09:29 UTC Just Tweet It is like an online phone book for Twitter users. With Just Tweet It, you can either view Twitter users by directory, or add yourself to a category that you see fit. The site, which is just a custom tweak of Wordpress and similar in function to Twellow, could prove to be a handy alternative to Chris Brogan's Twitter Packs wiki directory. To add your name to a specific area, just select your desired category, add your name, email address, Twitter URL, and optional description with or without HTML - it works just like a standard Wordpress comment box. One of the cool features about Just Tweet It is that you can subscribe to any individual directory, via email or RSS, to get notified when new Tweeps are added to bunch. The downside to Just Tweet It is that searching for new people to follow could prove a lengthy task for categories with hundreds of Tweeters, and the site could really benefit from adding in easy ways to sort … [Read more...] about New Twitter Directory: Are You Listed?
Bruno Mars was the big winner at the 60th annual Grammy Awards, beating out the smash hit “Despacito” for Song of the Year with “That’s What I Like,” and winning Record of the Year and Album of the Year for 24K Magic over Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, and Childish Gambino. Lamar entered the night with seven nominations, and while he took home Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap / Sung Performance, and Best Rap Song, he was shut out (again) from less genre-specific awards like Album of the Year, which has historically been unfriendly to rap and hip-hop, as well as Record of the Year. The ceremony kicked off with a searing performance by Lamar interspersed with commentary from comedian Dave Chappelle, who noted, “the only thing more frightening than watching a black man be honest in America is being an honest black man in America.” The medley of Lamar’s work continued with dancers in camouflage military uniforms, cameos by Bono and The … [Read more...] about The complete list of 2018 Grammy Award winners
Facebook is introducing a new feature for posting status updates, called Lists, as reported by TechCrunch. The new feature, which begins rolling out today, is yet another way the company is trying to get people to share more personal content to their own pages, following statuses with colored backgrounds, its Did You Know feature, and all sorts of ways to make anyone use Stories. Lists appears to be a way for users to create a list of, well, anything they choose, such as places they’d like to travel to or a simple to-do for the day, as shown in the examples below. The Lists can then be decorated with gradient backgrounds and assigned an emoji that appears next to the list title. For now, the ability to create Lists is only available on Android. iOS users will be able to view Lists on their phones, but can’t currently create them. If the new feature is available for you, it should appear as an option once you tap on “What’s on your mind?” to create an … [Read more...] about Facebook’s new Lists feature is yet another way to post personal updates
The best to-do list app will always be whatever works for you. One reason for the enduring popularity of pen-and-paper-based methods is that they can map perfectly to your individual needs. Bullet journals, which have surged in popularity in recent years, encourage you to pepper them with your own idiosyncrasies: widgets to track various goals, say, or lists of books to read, nestled alongside your daily chores. You impose your own point of view on a paper to-do list, for better and for worse. Software, on the other hand, imposes its viewpoint on you. It asks you to bend your way of working to the only one it knows, in ways that can be suffocating. So, for you to trust your personal productivity with software, it has to go far beyond what pen and paper can do. Properly used, it should feel like a superpower in your pocket. You should get more things done, more easily than you would without it. Otherwise, what’s the point? Many to-do list apps are free — or built into your … [Read more...] about The best to-do list app right now
