Oh You Tweet Thing

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Here’s another Twitter display system, this time one aimed squarely at the global events market.

Nicky Wake and her tweet thing

Greater Manchester based Don’t Panic event management agency gave the system a national launch at the two day Events & Exhibiting Show in London back in July. Don’t Panic MD Nicky Wake told us “Twitter has revolutionised the way people interact at events and we’ve been using it for around four years now from showing simple branded searches on the original platform to using some of the small number of expensive bespoke solutions that exist to do the job.”

Tweet Thing allows users to set advanced searches of Twitter’s public timeline, live moderate tweets if required and show the results on a customisable display for projector or plasma screens.

“First and foremost we’ve developed Tweet Thing for event managers like ourselves and felt that a customisable, easy to use interface would fill a gap in the market and provide an affordable way to show tweets at events, meetings and any type of public gathering that would benefit from displaying an interactive conversation.” Nicky added.

Nicky Wake said of the Events & Exhibiting Show held at the Business Design Centre in London “It was an exciting couple of days with a constant flow of people from all sectors visiting our stand for information and demonstrations. Surprisingly, we were the only exhibitors promoting a social media product to delegates but there was a general acceptance that Twitter is bringing a new interactive dimension to all kinds of events activity.”

Tweet Thing is available on an annual licence for GNP 499 + VAT
