A good rant can go a long way—unless Twitter’s short posts and impossible threading cramp your style.
That’s where Stormcrow comes in. It tries—like others before it — to make it easier to rant and rave 140 characters at a time. The brainchild of app developer Jared Sinclair, Stormcrow arrived in Apple’s App Store ($2.99) at the end of last month.
Type up your long rant, then let the app break it up into properly formatted, numbered and threaded tweets posted in the correct order.
The name of the app presumably gets “storm” from tweetstorm — the common term for Twitter rants, but it also has some fantasy references thrown in.
In Game of Thrones, the Stormcrows are “sellswords,” or mercenaries. In Lord of the Rings, Gandalf is called “Stormcrow” by King Théoden. What GoT and LOTR have to do with tweeting your frustrations in a chronological and well-organized fashion is not really clear, but that’s a topic for its own tweetstorm.
