Harrison Lee says he spent most of late 2010 experimenting ways to make Twitter more useful.
“It was lots of time in my living room to flesh out an idea,” says Lee.
After some tinkering with ideas along with co-founder and developer Inil Koh, the duo founded Tweetalicious, a Twitter client  launching today that focuses on helping its users find the most relevant deals and coupons.
 
The interface of Tweetalicious should look familiar to TweetDeck users, however Tweetalicious includes several deal-finding features including  a “Deal Me” button that shuffles between a group of deals selected for you based on your interests. In the future, Lee says that Tweetalicious will be smart enough to suggest deals based on location and recommendations from friends.
Lee says the company is inspired by the pleasant serendipity of StumpleUpon, a service that allows users to jump between random sites selected and approved by other users, and wondered if something similar could be built on Twitter.
The company, based in King of Prussia, hopes its user begin passing deals along via email and retweets making it a win for both users and companies.
“We really want this to be the remote control for shopping on Twitter,” says Lee.
