The Aussie-developed EpicTweet aims to highlight the most notable posts on Twitter without, as the creators put it, "following 10,000 people and reading hundreds of tweets". Tracking is by a mixture of obvious selections (Obama, the Hudson River plane crash) and audience voting on tweets (many of which have been tagged with #epictweet in a pre-emptive bid for glory). The voting option means it can potentially be a time sink, but it is a fun way of catching key Twitter moments. For a more news-centric approach to Twitter aggregation, check out previously-mentioned TweetNews.
