If you’ve been under a rock, then you will benefit from this post … of course, if you’re a regular Twitter iPhone app user then you already know that Twitter photo filters became available as of the last update. You also know that they’re awesome.
My only issue is that I use Instagram for my photo filter action and then just repost to Twitter so I’m not sure how much I’ll be using Twitter’s new photo filters. It does make nice for an alternative or a go-to for Twitter power users. Continue reading Twitter Photo Filters for iPhone are Sweet
I’ve been testing out Banjo, the new social discovery app, over the past week. I must say, I’m quite impressed. In a nutshell, the free iPhone app allows you to “discover what you’re missing.” For example, open Banjo and see what’s happening with your friends or others in your local area… or Paris.

Of course, the real ouster was TechCrunch who spilled the beans earlier this month, but also cited that Bill Gross’ UberMedia first made the offer in the $25 to $30 million amount.
Most are speculating that this was a defensive move. And why not? What company wouldn’t want to control their own property. However, I’m a big fan of HootSuite for iPad.
Thoughts? What did Twitter have to gain or lose by controlling a third party app?
