Mixero – Reducing the Noise of Twitter


Mixero calls itself the new generation Twitter client for people who value their time and are tired of noise information” and, while their claim may be lengthy, it doesn’t make it any less accurate. The goal of Mixero is pretty simple: make Twitter easier to use. Their consumer base is most likely made up of Twitter power users—those who update constantly and follow more people than they could possibly count and businesses who are looking to monetize the marketing power of Twitter. For these people, Mixero is a godsend.

Mixero synchronizes Twitter posts and displays them in an organized, easy-to-use fashion. Users have an “ActiveList” where all information from groups, contacts and channels is conveniently displayed on a timeline. Of course, you can filter the timeline as needed, choosing keywords, or even turning off the filter entirely. Other neat features include auto-completion of direct messages and replies, as well as the ability to see the URL merely by scrolling over the link.

Overall, Mixero is a great way to streamline communication and an excellent way to “reduce the noise” of Twitter. Not all Twitter users will necessarily see the need for an app like Mixero, but for serious users, it’s almost a necessity.
