I might miss some alerts, can you store them all on the particls.com website in a sort of inbox?35 votes
Rather than just command line controls, I'd like to see all my topics and be able to add, edit and delete them via a website dashboard18 votes
I'd like a way to toggle Particls on and off. Maybe I am busy one day and I don't want any notifications, I should be able to send the following command:
d particls off
d particls on
To toggle the service on or off for 1 day
Ability for user to specify which channel to disable (e.g. IM, Twitter etc)
Ability for user to specify timeframe in hours14 votes
@Al3x from Twitter assures us there is no way to get around the 5000/day DM limit on the Twitter API.
What do you suggest we do to solve this problem? How would you best like to receive notifications from @Particls in the future? Would you be willing to pay for Twitter DMs? How much? What are the alternatives?

There are now instructions for the new XMPP bot instead of DMs – http://blog.particls.com/index.php/instructions

By observing my short term history of tweets, you can work out what I seem to be interested in. Regularly msg me with suggested topics to add to my follow list.6 votes
I'd like to be able to do the following
d particls digest [time in hours] [email address]
where email address sets your admin address, if you exclude it, it uses the address on file. if no address is on file it should reply with an error 'please specify an email address.'
d particls digest now
which sends a digest of new items since the last digest5 votes
I would like to be able to update my twitter status via the xmpp bot as it would be much more convenient, similar to the way the old official twitter bot let you do so. I realise this requires password storage, but if you can somehow integrate into their OAuth it might work without needing to store clear passwords. (I'm not 100% sure on how their oauth works)5 votes
Wouldn't it be great if you could define an exclude list as well... Great for filtering out those unwanted internet memes, blocking chatter from conferences you aren't particularly bothered about, as well as just generally reducing the noise &
"help users filter the noise and experience a personally relevant Internet"
PS that qoute is taken straight from the particls blog ;)
Love Regards etc
Rather than just tracking topics on Twitter, what about adding FriendFeed support as well? Send me an alert whenever my topics of interest are mentioned there.3 votes

So when you remove a keyword like "Internet", running the following command "d particls remove internet" should remove the keyword from my list
note: in case it's not obvious the first "Internet" has a capital I, the 2nd "internet" has a lower case i3 votes
I would be really useful if the @twittername text could be converted to a hyperlink to that users twitter page, so I could click through the link and see the context of the tweet.
In a tweet like this there would be links to both users:
"Tweet from @JonesAndy (Andy Jones):@ColinEnglish I see you're a fellow geek like me. I work at Hursley Labs do you ever come down this way ?"3 votes
Can we see a listing (i.e., topic cloud) of the Particls topics, ordered by popularity? And maybe the # of tweets pushed per topic, and how often? Displaying such attention data would be really cool!2 votes
I am getting hits in Spanish, really only want English.2 votes
I'd love to add subjects of interest through text selection and a right click.1 vote
I'd like to be able to create a new twitter account and have Particls usurp it. Then I'd like it to broadcast alerts based on topics for me.
E.g. I'd like to set up a '@DataPortabilityNews' account and Have the Particls system send automated, topic related tweets for me via that account.
I will even give you my Username and Password!
I'd also like to be able to stop, pause and modify this at any time.0 votes
