Breaking news is what Twitter does best. Whenever something huge happens both users and journalists turn to tweets to find out exactly what’s happening and to get pictures or videos. Monitoring this live stream of events is important to the media and companies that have a reputation to uphold. There are many services which offer this, including Twitter themselves; the search function can be a quick way to get hold of popular tweets on a story or event. However, they’re often lacking.

TwittStorm is a new take on monitoring Twitter in realtime, one that looks great and is fast enough that it seems more promising than most Twitter apps. Let’s take it for a spin and see how it holds up.


As anyone working in the record industry will attest, virtually all music is now consumed digitally. There is a massive market for digital downloads, but there is also a huge number of music fans who get their fix through streaming sources.

Songdrop is a free service that can be used to access music from all of your favorie streaming sites in one place – no more jumping from site to site. Let’s take a look and see how it can simplify listening to the music you love online.


Last night (September 8th, 2010) at 7pm EST, Envato held a Community Meetup in Chicago, IL. One of our awesome staff had the brilliant idea of streaming the event live for those who may not have been able to make it. However, the stream was also recorded so if you missed the live action you can still check out the fun and get a chance to see Envato staff such as our CEO, Collis, marketplace and tuts+ site managers, as well as myself.

There was also a fun Q & A section, so be sure to check that out as well if you missed the live stream. Enjoy!
