Dwigger – Digg for Twitter!

Hit List 2022 Dwigger: Social Voting and Discussions for TwitterIt was only a matter of time before somebody came up with a way to rank Twitter posts just like Digg ranks other web content. Dwigger was released on Saturday and it’s already getting some good reviews.

How it works
The first feature you see is the ability to vote on Tweets, logging in with your Twitter login and password. Tweets are ranked by popularity in the “zeit cloud” of tags and popular dwiggers can be found in the “Top This Week” and “Popular People” boxes.

There’s a lot more you can do with it:
Paste one of your favorite Tweets into Dwigger so it can be voted for and commented on.

Post directly in Dwigger which will then post to Twitter, and you can add a second post as a comment as well (for those times when 140 characters is just not enough!) and both the original post and replies are threaded together. In some ways it is a little like Plurk, just easier to follow IMHO.

Another nifty feature is the ability to post to Dwigger with the city or country you’re posting from. It’s a short list at the moment, but I’m sure it will expand quickly.

I love the idea of being able to follow threads in Dwigger, and I am especially happy to see that I don’t have to add another log-in or try to get all my friends to migrate to a new service in order to use it.

All in all?
It time for a service like this and it’s way to easy to use for it not to be a raging success.

I like it in principal, but I found the UI to be a little confusing. For example, how does one find the URL to a specific tweet? Even I don’t know how to do that.

I suppose the idea is to use dwigger to post from so you can see them and others can rate them, but you can’t link directly to a tweet to send to your friends to rate. This is not quite the same as Digg. It would be valuable to be able to post a link in your article for people to go to your tweet announcing it and dwigg it there.
