I’ve been playing around with Twitxr, a new microblogging service from FON Labs that includes location information, posting of photos and Facebook cross-posting, all features that I would love to see in integrated into Twitter. Of course you don’t have to give up Twitter to use Twitxr, you can configure Twitxr to automatically cross-post to your Twitter account and if you have uploaded an photo to Twitxr, a link to that image will show up on the Twitter post. Here’s my account on Twitxr.
A cool Twitxr feature is the Friends map, which shows your friends locations and when you click on their avatar it displays their last post.
Of course I would use something like this a lot more if it were integrated with Flickr, where I post all of my photos, but for now it might be a good option for posting text and images from mobile devices.
