5 twitter apps from the Triangle: @idek, @tweetgrid, @easytweets, GeoTweeter & just launched @getencouraged

Once again, I’m devoting a blog post to twitter on The next post will be about some social media tools, I promise. Nevertheless, if you didn’t know, I reside in Raleigh, N.C., and we call the area the Triangle, which includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and surrounding areas such as Cary, Carrboro, Apex, etc. We’re also known as the Research Triangle Park, aka RTP, which is home to companies like Cisco, IBM and Sony Ericsson. As for startups in the area we have iContact, ruzuku, Carrboro Creative Coworking, Bronto, Unblab to name a few and recently some Twitter web based apps have been created right here in the Triangle. Here are five that I know of.

1. @idek is a url shortener, you have a long url, we have some short ones to spare. Sounds like a fair trade.

As you can tell I’m proud of NC and the teams behind each site and speaking of startups this weekend in Raleigh, NC we’re having Triangle Startup Weekend. If you’re in the area come by and let’s launch another startup.

Do you know someone who created a twitter app? If so what state or city do they reside in?
