About.me is Great, If You Have a Use For It

The twitterverse is getting more massive by the day. Of late, Twitter has become a hot bed of everything real-time on the web. The downside is, there’s too much data, too many conversations and too many people to keep track of from a Twitter account’s home page.

Most of us need an app to streamline and present the conversations in a manner that makes sense. There are a number of apps for desktop and otherwise that claim to address this issue. One among them is HootSuite.
