Coming Soon: Dribbble, a Twitter for Developers

It seems someone has taken the Twitter mold and made something useful with it (or, at least, more useful). A new site called Dribbble is soon to open up to the public and allow developers to showcase the projects they’re working on.

From website’s official blog:

“Dribbble is show and tell for designers, developers and other creatives. Members share sneak peeks of their work as “shots” — small screenshots of the designs and applications they are working on. It’s also a place to talk design, give and receive feedback and iterate toward better work.”

The way the site works is, like Twitter, by limiting what users can share. Here, instead of a character limit, designers get a 120,000 pixel limit with which to showcase their work in a screen shot. This leads to intriguing teases of upcoming software, applications, and art.

The site is currently in a private invitation-only mode, but will soon be open to the public. While it’s certainly a niche idea, it seems like the kind of site that will develop a very devoted (although relatively small) community of fans.
