The Story

Founded: August 2009. Closed: April 2012.

Tag and filter your peeps to organize them; add notes and full contact details; export custom lists to Twitter and vCard; receive a weekly report of your Twitter activity...everything you need to stay organized!

PeepNote was the vision of Brian Burridge, who assembled a team of top professionals in their fields to complete the project for the 2009 Rails Rumble, but with the intention that PeepNote would continue on past the competition. PeepNote continued for almost three years before the decision was made to close it down in April, 2012 to focus on other endeavors.

With Peepnote you could:

See and manage all of your peeps.

  1. Easily filter your peeps by tags you have assigned to them
  2. Apply built in filters, ex: has notes, favorite, mentioned you, following you
  3. Search your peep's Twitter bios and notes
  4. Export filtered list or search results to vCard or Twitter list
  5. Add Twitter users you aren't following so you can record notes and tags
  6. Quickly synchronize your PeepNote account with your Twitter account

Add notes, contact details, tags and reasons for following each of your Twitter peeps.

  1. Manage tags for a peep
  2. Make a note about why you started following a peep
  3. Manage notes about a peep
  4. Add contact and personal details (birthday, phone, email, etc)
  5. See their last mention of you
  6. Export to vCard
  7. Pause following a peep
  8. Synchronize this peep's Twitter data with the data displayed in PeepNote

"This is a really excellent concept, I love it!! We are cultivating so many relationships that we can forget very important details about people. PeepNote will fix this and allow us to be seen as thoughtful and friendly..." ~ @HelenRappy
