Rewind Twitter and replay it in real time

Rewind Twitter

Twitter - from the past!

Ever watched a recorded TV programme and wished you could see what the reaction was on Twitter? Now you can!

Together with the brilliant developers at Raak, I've (beta) launched Tweet Rewinder.

It's a mobile web app that lets you rewind your Twitter timeline and see tweets from the past unfold in real time

You can do the same thing with certain hashtags (there's a list anyone can use or users of the paid-for service can choose their own hashtag to capture - whether it's a TV programme, news event or conference).

Anyway, if you go to, you can watch a video that explains how it works and sign up for the beta version (which works best on a mobile phone right now). But here are some screenshots. (You can follow Tweet Rewinder on Twitter, too).
