Unwanted Messages On Twitter? Filttr Will Tell You What’s Worth Reading:

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick. It has got a resource for information, useful links, breaking news and status messages from your friends or companies you’re interested in. But if you have a large network or if you’re following a lot of stream, it’s not easy to filter out what’s important or relevant to you from the heaps of short messages that you’re continuously being bombarded with.

Here comes to your rescue Filttr, a new project from a department of web hosting company Racked Hosting, that aims to enhance your Twitter experience with a client that automatically filters content from your followers using an algorithm dubbed FLAI (Filttr Artificial Intelligence) and offers a whole lot  of additional features which might also come in handy.

When you sign up for the service ( you need to enter your Twitter credentials so that’s up to you), Filttr will analyze any data it can find based on your account settings and history in order to determine what you’re most interested in. Once the analysis is done, you’ll be presented with a timeline on a web-based or Adobe AIR powered desktop application (there’s even full support for IM and a mobile site) that essentially filters content Filttr assumes you don’t want to read.

Even if just for the extra features, you should most definitely check out Filttr if you’re a regular Twitter user.
