Telling you how we see the world.
One of the most useful and yet easily overlooked features of Cadmus is Twitter Conversations. Twitter is great for putting out simple status updates but it is also a great tool for connecting with one another. However if you are seeing a whole bunch of @replies in your stream it gives you the feeling that you are missing the whole picture. For example, if you see a couple of your friends carrying out a conversation in your stream; you would need to scroll all the way back to see the starting point of that conversation to get a feel for what they are talking about.
Cadmus groups these @replies together as comments and links them to the update that started it all. Also, our algorithm moves up such conversations in your stream. So not only do we group them together but we also bring them to you so you don’t miss out on them. Below is a great example of Twitter conversations from my stream. Through all the other services I would just see a string of these posts that would needlessly be crowding my stream.
We don’t just stop there, we make it easy for you to participate in these conversations as well. By adding a comment to this conversation we do a @reply to the original post. If you click the reply buttons right next to the comment, it sends a @reply to that post.
There is another neat little effect this feature has on my usage. Sometimes, my friends get caught up in a conversation that I am not really interested in. This means that they tend to fill up my stream with stuff that I don’t really care about. With Cadmus you would not see the back and forth chatter over and over in your stream. It would be neatly tucked away in one cluster of posts.
This is just another way Cadmus helps you get the most out of your social media services without using up all of your time.
