We're just happy to supplement an already great site and idea.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 6, 2009
TwitRep.ly, founded in early September 2009 by two software engineers, supplements the Twitter service by adding comments and the opportunity for lively discussion on Twitter.
The web site works by allowing users to sign in using their Twitter username and then posting Topics (or Tweets). The Tweet is automatically posted to their Twitter page with a short URL linking back to their topic so a discussion can take place.
The founders, both active users on Twitter, disliked not being able to have a conversation on a specific topic with several Twitter users. Similar to Facebook's "comment" feature under a status update, TwitRep.ly provides this desired feature to enhance the value of Twitter status updates. Twitter enthusiasts who have long wished for an alternative to the @reply, or prefer a public commenting area, will find the newly launched site to be a must-have Twitter service.
The developers said they have many new features up their sleeves, including private notifications, posting settings, and account features. Currently built-in to the system is the ability to monitor replies and responses to topics, automatically post new topics and replies to the user's Twitter page with their own URL for discussions, and a log that displays all comments on the site.
"We're working on the site night and day based on the feedback we've been receiving. We've had a great response so far and we're happy fellow Twitter users find the service useful," one of the founders stated, "We're just happy to supplement an already great site and idea."
