Twitter FreshLinks Bookmarklet

FreshLinks is a simple browser bookmarklet I created that you can use to get a quick understanding if a Twitter user has recently been sharing any useful links.

To install, drag or save this link to your browser bookmarks toolbar: FreshLinks

A text button labeled ‘FreshLinks’ should appear on your bookmarks toolbar. Now, first open someone’s Twitter user page, mine for example: @CleverClogs. To filter my updates and display just links that I’m sharing, click on the FreshLinks bookmarklet button.

This is a before-and-after sketch of the effect of using the bookmarklet:

As a bonus, the script excludes retweets and won’t show updates fed into the Twitter stream through TwitterFeed.

I’m obviously curious for your constructive feedback, please tweet it to the attention of @CleverClogs.
