Share Article

Do you know where your tiny URLs are? Krumlr (http://krumlr.com), an innovative social bookmarking site, will easily bookmark interesting pages and tweet about them to Twitter using a handy browser toolbar link. Krumlr does all this without copying and pasting URLs. The URLs posted to Twitter are saved to your Krumlr profile for sharing in its unique social bookmarking platform.

I am really impressed with the quality of content I find while on Twitter

Twitter is fast becoming the most popular social media site on the Internet today. Many Twitter users interact by sharing URLs to interesting web pages in their posts called tweets. Twitter, however, offers no method for users to save the information after a tweet. Krumlr allows Twitter users to save and keep sharing the URLs posted on Twitter.

"I am really impressed with the quality of content I find while on Twitter," says Krumlr creator Pete Wingard. "The content on most social bookmarking sites doesn't compare to Twitter's and Krumlr hopes to capture it."

Since the Tweets are limited to 140 characters, many of these URLs must be shrunk in size before posting to Twitter. Web sites like tinyURL can shrink URLs but this requires the Twitter user to cut and paste URLs several times. Krumlr (krumlr.com) allows users to tweet and bookmark without cutting and pasting.

Krumlr can tweet and bookmark any page with only two clicks once the user signs up and adds the Krumlr toolbar link to the browser. The bookmark, also called a page krum, is then saved to the users Krumlr profile after the tweet. This gives the Twitter user additional social bookmarking tools.

Other Krumlr (http://krumlr.com) features: Users can follow or be followed by any number of other users like on Twitter. The page krums are also shared virally. Page krums from those followed appear chronologically on the user page to review and share with their followers. The more popular page krums appear on the front page for everyone. Krumlr also makes it easy to find interesting people to follow and then tweet about their page krums to Twitter.

Krumlr is the creation of Pete Wingard, a web developer from Atlanta, GA. You may follow Pete on Twitter at http://twitter.com/netlatch or contact him through Yougler at http://yougler.com/pete.
