I'll admit that when I first heard of Twitter I laughed at the idea of it. I was sure that the idea of confining your online thoughts to a mere 140 characters would be just another Internet fad that died a few months after people got tired of it. I'm not ashamed to admit that I was wrong and that Twitter is now my communicative lifeblood. I find myself using it far more often to track friends, websites, news, movies-- basically everything.
Well now it just got even more useful thanks to fflick.com, a remarkably simple website that effortlessly (at least on the user's end) combines Twitter with movies. All you have to do is head over to their site and give it permission to have access to your Twitter count the same way you would with any other application. Once you've given it the go ahead it will automatically scan your followers lists and pull out everything they're saying about movies, grouping all of their tweets together by title. It's genius.
It's still a pretty useful site even if you're a non-Twitterer. If you simply want to take a gander at what all is trending on Twitter, you can hop over to the fflick homepage where everything is organized by movie title (what's in Theaters, On DVD, Coming Soon etc). A simple click on each poster will bring up a page that succinctly presents all the relevant tweets about the title, organizing them by various categories, including what "interesting" people are saying about it.
It's a brilliantly simple website that's both incredibly functional and an excellent time waster if you just want to see what people are saying. My only real complaint about it thus far is that the fflick crew consider @KimKardashian to be an "interesting" person. Check it out when you have a minute.
Big thanks to @Aaron_Morgan for the find.
