Following on from the previous Something for the Weekend, Twickie, which allows you to collect responses to a question posted on Twitter, this tool allows you to present a conversation – with impressive control.
QuoteURL allows you to drag and drop (or copy and paste) Twitter tweet URLs to reconstruct a conversation.
Here’s one I prepared earlier:
The tool allows you to include up to 4 tweets without registering, 10 if you have, and more if you pay for an account (not available at the moment).
There are a few weaknesses to the service – when I tried it you couldn’t actually see any more than 4 tweets – although they were clearly being stored: you have to work ‘blind’ so to speak.
And it seems you cannot have more than 1 consecutive tweet by the same person.
What is nice is that you can have more than 2 people involved in the conversation, and tweets seem to be arranged chronologically, so you can drag them in in any order.
If you have a play with it, let me know how you get on – or any uses you can see.
