One of the announcements Google made this week at its action-packed Google I/O conference was that Google Glass now has an app for Twitter, in addition to apps for Facebook, Tumblr, Evernote, Google+, CNN, and ELLE.
Earlier this month, a tweet from an official Twitter Glass app was spotted, indicating that the roll-out of said app wouldn’t be far behind. That time has arrived.
After Google announced it would be shutting down its uber-popular Google Reader feed aggregator this summer, feed-reading apps have been gunning to claim those lost Readerites for their own user base.
The most popular straight-up Google Reader replacement is Feedly, with other content aggregators such as Flipboard and Pulse offering users easy import of their Google Reader RSS feeds plus more – super-integrated social sharing, save-for-later functionality, content discovery.
In that second category, wishing to provide people an RSS reader that does more than just import your favorite feeds, is MyBucketz.
Neatly, an app developed by Cairo-based F16Apps, upends the normal Twitter user experience by changing your timeline from time-based into interest-based.
The idea behind Neatly is to make Twitter as organized and customized for each user as possible, weeding out irrelevant tweets and highlighting what’s important based on your social preferences and interests.

A tweet from an official Twitter Glass app has been spotted, meaning the roll-out of said app can’t be far behind.
Jonathan Gottfried, Twilio’s Developer Evangelist, has already built an unofficial Google Glass app called GlassTweet.
But if Twitter itself is working on a Glass app, that’s a whole different story.
A new online application called “Where Does My Tweet Go?” lets you examine exactly how a tweet spreads through Twitter.
The service, still in beta and created by information architect Benoît Vidal along with the team at MFG Labs in France, uses a visual algorithm to illustrate how your messages spread among both your followers and strangers.
