A quick way to see what people are linking to on Twitter

One of the most useful aspects of Twitter for me is following the links people post to their blogs and things they've been reading/watching. There's always good stuff in there.

But Twitter's like a 24-hour water cooler - people drift in for a while then move on and you never know who's going to be there when you show up nor what you've missed in the meantime.

You can look at someone's Twitter timeline and see everything they've been doing in the past few hours or days, but that can take a while.

Enter Twitturly, which lets you see what people have been linking to. It searches a Twitter user's timeline and pulls out posts containing links, filtering out the rest.

Go to and type in someone's Twitter username or type into your browser address bar.

Say you want to see what New York venture capitalist Fred Wilson's been linking to. Go to and you'll see a page like this:

Type in and you'll see what I've been linking to.
