This is actually pretty cool, and it’s one of those things that really should come built right into Twitter.
Bettween.com lets you track conversations between any two Twitter users. Simply punch in their names (or click on one of the pre-selected pairings on the front page) and away you go.
Alternatively, if you enter just one name in the first search box (yours, for example), the site will track down every person you’ve ever have a conversation with, and you can then read those marvellous discussions at your leisure.
Using the magic of Twitter’s API, it even goes back further than the seven-day limitations imposed by Twitter’s (fairly rubbish, at least in this aspect) search function.
It can take a few minutes to find all your tweets the first time you use it, but once pre-loaded, Bettween.com promises to be a lot faster next time.
The site is still in beta, and I’m sure there are one or two bugs waiting to spring on the unsuspecting, but this is a handy tool, and while I’ve seen other Twitter conversation trackers before, they haven’t felt quite as natural as this.
I like it. Have a play around and see what you think.
