Testing Twhirl 0.8.8, inspired by Loic's enthusiasm

I signed up to test Twhirl 0.8.8 and it has some pretty cool new features which Loic Le Meur (Seesmic’s founder) showed Robert Scoble in this video.

So far features I really like include saved searches, universal @ responses in Twitter (every mention of you) and the ability to record Seesmic videos from Twhirl itself (I am using Seesmic more and more lately, it is a lot of fun and using it for video comments is a great change). One thing I love about Seesmic is Loic’s enthusiasm and the fact that he takes the time to reply to as many videos he receives (it works a lot like Twitter with replies and the ability to send videos directly to people). This video is a really good example of his enthusiasm. It is infectious!

Another great thing about Seesmic is that it is integrated into Disqus so if you use Disqus to manage your comments on your blog (I recommend giving it a try if you are not), you can enable Seesmic comments too (as well as Facebook Connect integration!).

Update:
Loic has published a step by step screencast showing some of the features you will find in the latest version of Twhirl Some of these features will be familiar to you if you have been using Twhirl and some will probably pique your interest that much more than Twhirl does already.

  1. Hi Paul

    I recently met Loic at a Stanford seminar. He really is a dynamic personality with a lot of energy. He is very high profile too – he was recently at Davos and then was at an exclusive TED gathering.

    But most interestingly, I think Seesmic is a great example of how a business can be very effectively marketed through social media and social networks. Loic is everywhere on the web – talking with everybody and popping up in prominent places.

    I am sure this has made a huge contribution to Seesmic's growing following.

    By the way, great blog – really enjoying it.

    Best regards
    Kevin

  2. Hi Kevin

    Thanks for your feedback. I find Loïc fascinating. He is the current embodiment of Cluetrain for me. He is actively involved with his community, gives feedback on issues, replies to my sometimes inane queries and comments and is clearly passionate about his work. He inspires me to be more passionate about mine and innovate more in my field.

What do you think?
