Different from any Twitter app in the same category, Tweetboard runs on your site rather than being a "destination" site.
It creates a more meaningful Twitter by reformatting tweets into threaded conversations, with unlimited nesting.
Tweetboard's biggest value to website owners is that it enables visitors to engage via the app without leaving your site. This has various benefits:
Introduces your site visitors to what you are doing on Twitter
Keeps your site visitors on your site
Has a viral traffic generating potential proportional to the amount of tweeting conducted via your TB; Every tweet (or reply) posted via the app is pushed to Twitter with a link back to your site. The link back is not a lame attempt at bringing twitter traffic to your site, but a means of providing context to the conversation: Parent tweets are appended with a http://posted.at/XXX link, while replies are appended with http://inreply.to/XXX (Friendfeed uses this approach with http://ff.im/XXX, as well as Disqus, with http://disq.us/XXX - none provide context with the link itself, as TB does.)

Tweetboard is a micro-forum type application for your website. It pulls your Twitter stream in near real-time (max 1 min delay), reformatting tweets into threaded conversations with unlimited nesting. Conversations that spun off the original conversation are also threaded in-line, giving your site visitors full perspective of what’s being discussed.
Tweetboard is also a viral tool that engages website visitors. Each time someone posts (or replies) via your board, a link back to the corresponding conversation is appended to their tweet, creating a viral stream of Twitter traffic to your website.
