In my keynote at the OhmyNews forum today, one of the things I cited as an idea with intriguing potential for news purposes was Twittergram, a service created by Dave Winer in the past few weeks. It connects audio with Twitter.

From my perspective the best part of it is the way it shows how Web APIs are making it increasingly possible to create new applications, quickly and relatively easily. Journalists are grossly behind the curve on this stuff, with a few exceptions, and they need to understand how many new tools they’re missing — but could use to great effect if they took the time to learn about them.

    Have you tried Hictu? It’s like twitter, but you can make audio and video posts too.
