We’ve been working a new site called TwitChimp for a client, and while it’s still in beta, the widget we just finished for it is worth trying out. TwitChimp lets you create lists of up to 100 Twitter accounts and share them either on your own site with a widget, such as the one below, or on your own page on the site. I’ll be describing TwitChimp’s features in more detail as we continue working on it, but I’m so pleased with the way the widget came out that I wanted to show one off. As usual, my son, Zach, did the user interface of the site and the widget code, and I built the back-end database and Twitter API code.
Cool new Twitter widget
