GroupTweet extends group functionality for Twitter
Mike Gunderloy: “One of the persistent complaints about Twitter is that it doesn’t offer any sort of “group” functionality: messages from everyone you follow come in as a big heap, and anything you say goes to all of your followers. GroupTweet provides a solution for the second half of this complaint, by layering distribution groups on top of Twitter.”
As Mike points out, Twitter is challenging to deal with for group messaging. Most people have opted to set their profiles to private and to keep their followers to a select few in order to make Twitter a more private group chat tool. GroupTweet takes a novel approach to make group functionality work without changing how most users approach Twitter- with open profiles and a desire to tie their Twitter activity (personal, business, etc.) to a single identity.
