Google Buzz has been making waves ever since it was launched. Love it, hate it, but you simply can’t ignore it. In fact, Google Buzz is still trending on Twitter.
Thanks to tight integration with Gmail, Google Buzz already has a huge user base and most Buzz users are already following dozens of users. However, you can further increase your Buzz reach by tapping into Twitter.
Google allows you to connect your Google Profile with Twitter, but doesn’t offer any way to directly import your Twitter contacts. This is where Tw2buzz comes in.
Tw2buzz is a simple service, which cross-references your Twitter Followers list with Google Profiles and automatically builds a list of tweeples you may want to follow in Buzz.
Using the service itself is pretty simple. Make sure that you are logged into your Google account and authorize the app to connect with your Twitter profile. Tw2buzz will automatically parse and analyze your followers and prepare a list of Google Profiles. Due to the lack of a Google Buzz API, Tw2buzz doesn’t implement bulk follow. Instead you will have to open each user’s Google Profile page and follow them individually.
Techie Buzz Verdict
Tw2buzz is a handy service, if you are looking to grow your Google Buzz social circle. The lack of a mass follow option is disappointing, but as they say, something is better than nothing. At least Tw2buzz helps you in identifying Google Profiles of your followers. Another aspect, which may irk some users, is that Tw2buzz refers to your Followers list (instead of Following list). It is just a personal opinion, but I would be more interested in connecting with the people I follow rather than people who follow me.
