A co-worker of mine who happens to be in love with Google+ shared this extension with me: Google+Tweet.
It essentially integrates a full featured twitter client inside of your Google+ account. Once you sign in, it looks like this:
- Your Tweet stream inside of Google+. Access your twitter stream, view mentions, retweets, direct messages and favorites.
- A URL shortener via bit.ly,
- You can follow, un-follower users and view profiles,
- Upload photos through Twitpic,
Toggle one button over, and you have your Google+ stream.
It’s kinda cool actually. I like Google+. And these days, I usually Tweet from the web rather than using a Twitter client (though I prefer hootsuite when I’m trying to follow a chat like #blogchat). This way, I have two networks that I like to access regularly, in one browser tab.
I’m still playing around with it to see how I like it. As of right now, the only thing I don’t see is a way to access my Twitter lists which I use often. But otherwise, so far, so good.
Whatcha think? You gonna give it a spin?
