Curate and Follow Your Key Favorite Twitter Sources with Happy Friends

Curate and Follow Your Key Favorite Twitter Sources with Happy Friends | Educational Use of Social Media | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good, juandoming

Robin Good's curator insight, June 29, 7:20 AM



Happy Friends is a new free tool created by Dave Winer which allows you to closely follow those Twitter accounts for which you don't want to miss a beat. 


Happy Friends makes it easy for you to add (but not to delete for now) any Twitter account you want and to easily expand it to see all of its most recent tweets. 


The result is a simple interface which lists your favorite Twitter sources and allows you to check rapidly what each one of them has posted. 


What may escape anyone not reading this, is that by clicking on any of the headlines displayed inside Happy Friends you get to see the full Twitter card display, just as it was intended to be seen on Twitter with integrated images and video. 


Happy Friends fulfils for me a true need, as with Twitter typical readers and tools (including lists) it is very difficult to track specific sources postings without doing a few click acrobatics. 


I hope that in one of the upcoming versions, the formatting of the tweets will also be improved as to make it easier for the eye to rapidly scan the information presented. The twitter grey icons on the left do to little to quiet down the noise created by all the the tweet texts and links appearing on the Happy Friends page. Vertical spacing between items and separating text from links would significantly improve legibility and rapid eye-scanning of the content.


Very useful.


Free to use.

Why (And How) Teachers Are Using Twitter - Edudemic | Educational Use of Social Media | Scoop.it
Oh, Twitter. You’re so useful for teachers. You connect educators so that they can share tools, tips and tricks, offer insight, and support one another. You bring your sexy social media-ness into the classroom to keep kids interested in what they’re learning when they think they’re actually (sort of) having fun instead.  That said, there …
