Why isn’t twitter used by everybody? I think one of the reasons is that it doesn’t do group very well.
Sure there are many twitter fanatics who use it enthusiastically and innovatively. But we all reach a point that we want to twitter in groups. “Group” is the essence of social media. Twitter needs group features to truly differentiate from SMS. That’s how we had tags, hashtags, none worked that well. Tweme is down, again. Surely we need something better!
Enter GroupTweet. Check its web site to see how it works. It simply uses a twitter account created for the group, which follows the members. The real feature is member can broadcast to the group, by sending a direct tweet to the group.
Why not give it a try? I created a group called “MCDM_fun”, for us to do things like sports or anything fun. Here is what you need to do to join:
- Search and follow “MCDM_fun” on twitter
- When you want to broadcast something to the group, send a DIRECT message to “MCDM_fun” (type in “D MCDM_fun blah blah”)
Let’s have some fun!
