Shizzow shouts at Twitter
If only there were some way to combine a few of those things to save you a little time.
Well, we can’t move the coffee shops any closer together, but the folks at Shizzow have come up with a way to keep your location—and your Twitter friends—up-to-date on your latest whereabouts.
Simply enable the feature in your External Preferences and you’ll be able to post your location update and shout to Twitter from within Shizzow.
Just want to update your location and not bug your Twitter followers? Don’t add a message. No message, no tweet.
If only AT&T had performed as flawlessly, Shizzow would have been invaluable at SXSW. Unfortunately, with the Edge network cratering under the sheer girth of iPhone traffic in Austin, neither Shizzow nor Twitter managed to live up to their potential.
But now that we’re back in the land of the speedy connections, Shizzow will no doubt shine. And since many of us monitor Twitter far more than we monitor Shizzow, maybe just maybe we’ll have some more of those chance meetings that Shizzow was designed to facilitate.
