With more and more UK celebrities signing up to Twitter and allowing us to see glimpses of their lives, it can be hard to keep up with your favourite celebs. Twit Parade solves that problem for you!
With a custom developed software solution that monitors a growing number of UK public figures who use Twitter, Twit Parade (http://www.twitparade.co.uk) provides up-to-the-minute tweet updates, which are continuously checked 24 hours a day.
Visitors are greeted with the main page, which lists all of the celebrity tweets as they arrive. For a more in-depth look into a specific celebrity, site visitors can also click through to a dedicated page for each individual and see only their chosen star's tweets.
Twit Parade also generates a Tweet Cloud - the web site automatically analyses the words that have been used across everyone's tweets, finds the most commonly used words, and presents them on the page, sized and coloured according to frequency of use. These Tweet Clouds can be amazingly revealing at times, and can help celebrity watchers and fans spot trends. Tweet Clouds are also generated for each celebrity on an individual basis.
"The number of celebrities jumping onto Twitter at the moment is incredible, and it can be a full time job trying to keep up with who Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) or Philip Schofield (@schofe) have managed to recruit to the celebrity Twitter gang! The Twit Parade site means that our users can simply visit our site to see tweets by celebrity Twits on one easy to navigate website without having to follow loads of celebrities themselves. With the ability to 'retweet' or reply to a celebrity's tweet directly from the Twit Parade site, we provide a useful addition to the celebrity watcher's armoury!". Steve Browne, service creator.
The custom software that is behind Twit Parade does have a more serious side, however - the ability to monitor staff, pupils, associates or even competitors. This is a growing business in the Internet world, with experts predicting the market to be worth up to $250 million a year by 2011, as online reputation management becomes more crucial.
Steve Browne added - "Yes, Twit Parade is a bit of fun - who doesn't like to follow celebrity gossip? - but the underlying technology we have built enables us to deploy custom solutions that help businesses understand and manage how they are being discussed on services such as Twitter. It's a growing market, and many businesses are simply underestimating the damage that can be done to their brand if they're not paying attention and they haven't got their eye on the ball. Our solution can help them. "
