Twitter domain news: changing its name to


TweetLater, the popular third-party application Twitter tool which gets over 200,000 visitors per month, has decided to rebrand themselves by changing their domain name. 

Although Twitter encourages the use of the word ‘Tweet’ (as long as their users are protected), TweetLater has decided to go with SocialOomph [a name much harder to type in by far, especially with the letter ‘o’].

Here’s what TweetLater had to say about the name change:

From Monday, August 31st, 2009, will be no more and will be known as

The transition to the new name takes place over the weekend of August 29th and 30th.

Why The Change?

To date we have been focusing on providing productivity solutions for Twitter users. We decided to change our name to allow for future expansion into other social media solutions, and to ensure that our brand does not conflict with any current or future legal rights of the Twitter organization.

To allay any speculation, we want to make clear that this is an unsolicited, proactive and preemptive action on our side.
