Alexander Temerev and Alexander Kuklev created TwitDo. When people get busy, there is the tendency to want to create a list, reminders or notes. This is why TwitDo is gaining popularity, especially with those who are more inclined to tweet or use Twitter frequently.
To do lists are usuallu written on paper, but TwitDo provides an electronic option and uses a platform that is already quite popular and well known (Twitter). This is a unique alignment which makes it quite different from other applications. Integrating with Twitter helps to increase the popularity of the application.
The website provides the "manual" or instructions on how the list can be created. Content on the website is minimalistic and the user is encouraged to begin creating their list by simply tweeting. Instructions are also provided regarding how the list can be viewed. The downside is that there is no privacy or security. Hence, anyone with information about Twitter names or a person's activities can easily check the list. Also, there are other applications that can provide reminders privately and examples include Remember the Milk, which also uses Twitter.
There is no need to register sepearately on TwitDo because the application is uses Twitter to create the lists. Hence, by going to the TwitDo website (http://twitdo.com/) and placing the user's Twitter name at the end, the user can access their list. An example of one of the TwitDo founder's public list canbe seen at http://twitdo.com/temerev. No need for accounts or signing up for anything.
There is no cost to use the TwitDo application. Users send out tweets containing the item they want to add, remove or mark as completed on their list.
If a person forgets to do things or needs to remember to do certain things, then TwitDo can help, especially for those who are already using Twitter in some way. With so much to do and remember, TwitDo can be a useful way for creating a to do list on the go. No need stop and look for a piece of paper to write an item down or stop and look for the piece of paper that has an ongoing list. TwitDo would help users create and maintain an online to do list that will not be misplaced. For those who already use Twitter, online list management may be appealing as well. However, for those who seek privacy for their activities, TwitDo will not be appropriate.
