The problem was that the hosting provider kicked me out the server and suspended my account because of "Server Overload". Consider that it had 10.000 users in the first 24hs after launch it. This exceeded by far my expectations...
Let me share the story about me and why I did this app / extension...
As many of you, I'm a "loyal" Twitter user and also a "first generation user" of Google new product Google+
After a couple of days I realized that I had a new tab opened all the time and was switching from Google+ to Twitter and Facebook every 15 minutes. That's not productive at all...
Then I found the Google+Facebook extension which blown my mind so I thought " I need a Twitter one too". I looked everywhere but nobody did it before so I had to get it done by myself.
I had a previous experience with Twitter API because I made the already known web based twitter client My Tweet Place, so it wouldn't be so hard. 6 hours later the extension was published and then the buzz started...
I did this for three main reasons:
- It was something I need
- I love to build web apps
- I wanted to make a kind of gift to the twitter community in exchange of all the knowledge i got from them.
If you have a website, product or something you want to promote, at this moment could be shown daily to 10.000 users and still growing quickly. If you are interested just drop me an email to brunobar79 at gmail.com to talk about it...
If you don't have a bussines or product but you love this app and want to contribute to make it alive, just go here and donate whatever you can via paypal ( every single buck is welcome )
About the future of the app... I'm still working on it, first fixing some bugs and very very soon you will be able to :
- View your mentions, RT's , favorites, inbox and sent messages
- Search on twitter
- View user's profiles
- Follow and unfollow
- View your profile
SOME NOTES ABOUT THE EXTENSION :
You can unistall the extension when you want. Just find the extensions options in your browser's menu and it won't appear anymore in your google+ account
About permissions, the framework which the app is built, ask for them but I SWEAR that they aren't necessary at all. That will be fixed soon.
About browser support, now it's working only for Chrome and Firefox but soon it will support Internet Explorer and Safari too.
