We see a lot of Twitter mashups. Many are simply a new interface for Twitter search, but sometimes we see a new take on it and want to share them more broadly. Often, these become Mashup of the Day, as was the case with the three Twitter mashups below, each with a new take on the microblogging service's API.

    Adam DuVander Hi! I'm Developer Communications Director for SendGrid and former Executive Editor of ProgrammableWeb. I currently serve as a Contributing Editor. If you have API news, or are interested in writing for ProgrammableWeb, please contact editor@programmableweb.com Though I'm a fan of anything API-related, my particular interest is in mapping. I've published a how-to book, Map Scripting 101, to get anyone started making maps on websites. In a not-so-distant past life I wrote for Wired and Webmonkey.
