Keywordicon – Experimental Twitter Kynetx App

Keywordicon is an experimental Kynetx app that I built to modify the Twitter.com interface. It is based on the same code that runs my recently published tweet filter Kynetx app. I thought it would be interesting to annotate each tweet with icons based on key words found in the tweet… thus the name keywordicon (pronounced like favicon but with 33% more┬ásyllables). I don’t expect very many people to use it but it’s an interesting concept and it has been fun to use it and see how it changes the way I am able to skim through my tweet stream and stop at places that are interesting to me.

  1. Cool app. I’m thinking it could be expanded with more awesome icons for keywords. One thing I thought of right away would be a Retweet icon. Also, a Kynetx icon would rock. Probably others I could think of if I thought about it.

  2. Thanks @Mark! I like the way you are thinking. I kept it fairly simple so I could get it running and published so I am grateful for the suggestions. So are you saying that you like this concept and would like to see it improved? : )
