Ability to add new users to Twitter Lists

This is a greatly appreciated
feature in Seesmic Windows update. Simply by hovering over the user’s avatar,
you will be able to directly access Twitter lists and add other followers. The
modifications will automatically become available. 

Add to UserLists-Seesmic-Windows

Follow or Un-follow

One of the most practical and
useful functions of Seesmic Windows is the easiness of following or
un-following users. If you click on the user name, you’ll visit the selected
profile. Apart from the user’s information and updates, the profile includes the:
Follow, Un-follow and Block buttons. Of course, the profile also displays the
number of users tracking the line of tweets and recent updates. 


Native RT

Taking into consideration the fastness of spreading information, Seesmic Windows now integrates the new native RT. We have also kept the
<Quote function> for those of you that are still keen on the old style
RT. The gear wheel on a user’s avatar permits you to opt between the two. 


Block or Spam

If a user’s tweets or DM have
become an annoyance, it is possible to report it and Block or declare Spam. We
have included this option, always having the interest to maintain your
transparency and security issues unharmed.

Furthermore, we have also included the auto-correction of messages when introduced in panel box. 

You can also send Images via TweetPhoto network. 


The aspects that some of you have
so kindly pointed to us in the past have been dealt with: 

- Strange message appearing in timeline <
Unexpected character encountered while parsing value>
- The disadvantage of not being able to see all
the user’s image
- Inability to install the application
- Disadvantage of including shortened links into
the panel box
- Application failing unexpectedly
- Inability to see the correct size of the window
when maximized

We are very happy to hear your
opinions on using Seesmic Windows 0.6 and quite interested in all your feedback
and suggestions.

Seesmic Web Update – Contacts, Conversation Thread and much more

Seesmic Web can become from now on your new adventure to travel the Twitterverse. There are no limits for Seesmic web users to access their Twitter account and enjoy the full pleasure of these exciting new features.
We have relaunched Seesmic Web with these great features. These include: Contacts Manager, Conversation Threads and ReTweets, Twitter lists, GeoLocation and TweetMeme. 

Contacts Manager 

The most impressive and useful feature of Seesmic Web is the addition of Contacts. Using this top button, you will see all the users you are following. By clicking on a user name, you will find all the data introduced – number of followers and tweets, favorite tweets and the number of lists the user follows. 


Conversational Threads and ReTweets

Conversational Thread is one of the most alluring new features of the application. If you want to see the tweet exchange between you and other users, by clicking on <in reply to> you can see the set of replies. In ReTweets column, you verify the ReTweets you created, RTs by others and which of them were considered valuable and ReTweeted by your followers.  You can now either choose between the new RT and the old style ReTweet, now found in the Quote feature.



GeoLocation is one feature of high interest in Seesmic Web. Once you have enabled it in your Twitter Settings account and use Google Gears, your followers will be able to see the location the tweet was sent from. 

Twitter Lists – Edit with Drag and Drop

When you are in Seesmic web and want to add more members to your lists, you can now edit or even delete your Twitter lists. When discovering new users, you can just drag and drop them into the specified list and this addition will be automatically saved. If you want to create a new one, simply click on New List. On the contrary, if you feel that a list has to be deleted, this can now easily take place in Seesmic Web.


Clicking on the first part of a link, which is specifically individualized with a plus sign, you will enable the new TweetMeme option. The opened window announces the name of the site the link will take you to, the number of times it was ReTweeted and the starting part of the article. 


Other features include:

  • improved and highly attractive user interface
  • redesigned contact previews
  • redesigned contact details
  • seeing in Contacts your relations with users – if you follow your followers,
  • direct link to the Feedback site of Seesmic Web where you can send us your thoughts on improving Seesmic Web
  • scrolling Contacts
  • seeing columns in multi-lines or single-lines.

With these new options, Seesmic Web gives not only the ability to increase your Twitter visibility, but it also redefines our platform's usability. We hope Seesmic Web will assure you the pleasure and functionality of full Seesmic Twitter experience from everywhere and anyplace.

impact of recommendations. Help promote Seesmic Web by opting for the Tell a Friend feature. It enables you
to tweet the reason you find the app useful and efficient. This is why your

At the conference, we will be featured as part of the Developer Sandbox, a demo area where we will be featured on our products using Google technology. This includes on our recent release of our Seesmic for Android – a successful client application for Twitter, as well as our Seesmic Web application for Twitter.

You can find out more about the Developer Sandbox here:

Live Tweeting from Space Using Seesmic Look

Over the weekend, NASA astronaut T.J. Creamer made social-media news when he became the first person to send a Twitter message from space and started actively engaging users using Seesmic Look. 


Creamer, under his Twitter username, @Astro_TJ, is on board with other crew-members at the International Space Station. What's impressive is how much he's engaged with the users, replying to nearly all of the questions – some in real time! You'll also find some of the answers informative/educational. Can't wait to see this being used to answer a classroom.


It's exciting for the all of us here at Seesmic  to know that Seesmic Look is being used out in the International Space Station. Good luck to TJ and to the rest of the crew-members on their mission!
