TweetMart allows users to see items for sale and jobs in a Twitter-friendly format. Its co-founders "felt there needed to be a drop dead simple way to integrate a classifieds site with Twitter," according to the site.A project that's been available to the public for just two months,
Listings can be created on the site, although many are culled from Twitter posts, as well. Quick, simple, and free, TweetMart is still in the early stages of development but presents a great deal of potential for organizing the user-to-user - or even B2C - commercial use of Twitter.
Co-founder Will Kern wrote us today to explain how the site started and how it works. "The product launched with just the ability to list and tweet items for sale, but I quickly followed that up with the ability for recruiters and employers to post and tweet jobs," he said.
"I quickly recognized a huge potential in aggregating items being tweeted for sale on Twitter and jobs being posted on Twitter. I quickly followed that up with a release that pinged the Twitter search API and aggregated all items listed for sale and jobs being posted."
Kern also told us that the most recent releases of the app included OAuth support and the addition of "on sale" tweets.
Although listings can be spam-heavy in highly competitive areas such as real estate or content-light for categories such as art or event tickets, one can imagine that as Tweetmart's search of Twitter's unwitting classifieds improves, so will the site's content and usefulness.
