ListBrowser gets a new tool

Sunday, November 08, 2009 by Dave Winer.

I've done a bunch of little stuff for listbrowser.org, fixes and cleanups, added more data to the list pages, and most important, they now link back to the list on twitter.com.  Permalink to this paragraph

This raises the obvious question, how do you get from a list on twitter.com to the listbrowser.org version of that page? Permalink to this paragraph

For that, we needed a bookmarklet. Permalink to this paragraph

Follow the instructions on the page and then, any time you're on a list in Twitter and want to start exploring in listbrowser, just click on the tool. Permalink to this paragraph

Not earthshaking, but certainly nice-to-have. A picture named sidesmiley.gif Permalink to this paragraph
