Joshua Schachter Launches Tiny Thread, Threaded Twitter Conversations

Posted Aug 13, 2009

Joshua Schachter sold Delicious to Yahoo! then quit to join Google.  During the election, Joshua Schachter created a GreaseMonkey script to highlight news stories in blue or red to indicate the bias of different stories on Memeorandum.com.  Schachter decided to take another entrepreneurial route to launch a service called Tiny Thread.

Tiny Thread takes tweets and threads them together to form conversations.  The way it works is that there are threads on the website that you can interact with.  To contribute to the threads, you are required to login using a Twitter account and authorize Tiny Thread to access your account.

The threads go one level deep.  Schachter did this project on his own time rather than the 20% creative time allowed as a Google employee.
