Twitter has just rolled out a new interface that it had been testing for quite a while now which could only be seen by the new Twitter users. But now the interface has been put to the test and has ben launched across all Twitter accounts just earlier today. The new interface is more functional with updates on two key areas: integrated search and real-time updates. From now onwards, you can track the latest trends on Twitter and when you want to know more about that particular trend, just click on it for a real-time updates of the trends as tweets about that trend. And if you want to know more about that trend, you can save it and it will appear on the sidebar for you to track it later on. Other neat functions include a search box for you to search anything on Twitter without leaving your Twitter page as well as a new sidebar that can be collapsed to make it neater.
With the launch of new and better Twitter clients like Tweetie that offer search integration, Twitter has done a good job with its new interface while keeping it simple and easy to use. Liked the new Twitter interface? Be sure to comment and let us know
Socialthing has been quiet for quite a while with no new developments. But until recently, Socialthing has launched a new services called Socialthing for Websites which is supposed to be an “advanced suite of social networking services” that enable site owners to connect with the readers. Basically, it just means that website owners can just now interact with their readers through social networking- and all that in real-time. All the readers have to do is to sign in with their AIM username and password and gain access to other social services like Twitter and Flickr through AOL’s Open Authentication API as well as chat with one another through the chat: all of these in a neat toolbar at the bottom of the site. Meanwhile, The Boot is using this service on which you can use it to go for a quick trial. Socialthing for Websites looks highly functional and impressive but it is still in beta to allow more testing and better improvements. Could Socialthing be the next big thing to overtake Facebook Connect in the area of social networking integration? We will let you know once Socialthing for Websites gets out of beta.
It its World Malaria Day today and the oranization behind this, Malaria No More is using Twitter and other social networking services to reach out to the masses. Apparently, they are asking for donations to help support their fight against malaria. So please donate as generously as you can to help beat malaria.

We love to use Ping.fm since we had a lot of social networking accounts and we needed to update them with as much ease as possible in the shortest time possible and Ping.m was the ideal tool for us. However, we were always on the move and needed to have a mobile Ping.fm to update our status on the move.
So we found Pingle which was an iPod Touch/iPhone app client for Ping.fm and had a great interface to go with it and supports many services such as Facebook and Twitter. [Price:$1.99] But if you want to use Ping.fm free while on the move, here are some free alternatives. First, we recommend the mobile Ping.fm which is a mobile version of Ping.fm with just minimal interface. Or you can check out Nambu, a free iPod Touch/iPhone version of Ping.fm that is free.
