Today at the Trident Digital Village we were experimenting with many on-line Microblog services and 3rd party publishing applications for them.

Firstly we started at looking at online timeline services that allow you to publish content online in a managed easy to ready chronological order.

One of the best for online searches is Dipity this service provide the user to search a topic and the data that is pulled of the internet is put into an easy to read chronological time line.

We then looked at the more graphic intensive site Capzeles this site has a super attractive interface and is very flexible considering its a free service. I have managed to set up a site with in minutes.

We then looked at Twitter @digitaltrident and how we could embed our twitter time lines into our Dipity service.

Then we looked at ways to use 3rd party applications to manage our twitter accounts such as twitter clients brizzlytweetdecktweetie, and thwirl, and hootsuite theses all have there pros and cons and serve different purposes.
