If you’re the type of person who can’t remember what you did yesterday—let alone a year ago—then you might find the new free Twitter-centric app Tweetago to be an interesting find.

Tweetago is not a Twitter reader, nor is it a Twitter posting portal. Instead, using just your username, Tweetago is able to access your Twitter timeline (public accounts only, please) so you can see what you’ve done in the past. Currently, Tweetago will display tweets you posted on today’s date one year ago, as well as your Twitter activity from the past month, week or day.

There aren’t many extras in Tweetago—the inability to search your Twitter archive for a specific date is frustrating, for example. Because the app doesn’t pull in the other side of Twitter conversations (it shows @ replies), I didn’t gain much from looking at my tweets for the past week or month, but extremely prolific tweeters might feel differently. Tweetago does not require a password, so you can review any user’s public timeline activity through the app.

Tweetago is basic and an app I could live without, but it was an easy way to see what trouble I was getting into in early October 2009 (ahem, Las Vegas) and take a quick jaunt down memory lane. And really, that’s the whole point.
