TwitLinks.com – Twitter Tech News.

By Jon in Development, Launched

Launched a few hours ago, TwitLinks.com is a nice little resource for hot tech news.

The site pulls all its information and links from twitter using their API. They follow (what they call) “the worlds top tech twitter users”. That full list of people is available to view here.

What’s nice about it is news usually breaks on twitter before anywhere else. If you’re not an overly active twitter user or not a twitter user at all and don’t like the idea of following hundreds of people just for the off chance they might break some news this site is for you.

It’s a wonderfully simple idea and it’s definitely useful. It’s already got a decent amount of coverage. I asked my PHP buddy how much it would cost to develop such a website and he quoted me $250.

Just goes to show, if you have a bit of free cash and an idea, you can make things happen.

    I like it, simple yet pretty nice, especially as I don’t use Twitter. :)
