ThinkTank is a new, free installable web application that lets you capture the insights and expertise of your social network by collecting and organizing replies to your conversations on Twitter, Facebook and (soon!) other networks. ThinkTank is open source, built by a passionate community of people like you.

ThinkTank can do lots of cool stuff:

  • Show you all of your replies to a message, across both Twitter and Facebook.
  • Display a stream of all photos your friends have posted, or a list of all the links they've tweeted, and ThinkTank automatically expands shortened URLs!
  • Automatically archive your status updates (tweets) for all of your Twitter accounts — you can let your friends sign in to archive their messages, too.
  • Find out insights about your followers and friends, like who's most popular or who updates least often.
  • Archive all of your data in your own database. That makes it easy to export your status updates, follower lists, or any other data in the future.
  • Get detailed statistics about your activity, such as your average replies per day, or how often you update.
  • Publish a presentable list of replies to one of your questions, including integration with blogging tools like WordPress.
  • Whatever else our developer community and plugin authors can dream up
