Most people think Twitter is a bunch of noise - and they're right, but there are also some hidden gems of information. TripTwit.com allows you to easily find the local tweets that matter.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 19, 2010
Startup TripTwit.com aggregates Twitter data from local sources such as restaurants, hotels, attractions and blogs to provide real-time updates on local deals. Locals and travelers alike can use TripTwit to find out about things like free events, special sales, promotions and twitter-exclusive savings. Using TripTwit does not require a Twitter account, so people can still take advantage of real-time information even if they do not to set up their own Twitter account.
While there is a wealth of data on Twitter it can be difficult to find useful information. Local businesses and websites tweet about sales, coupons, promos & free giveaways every minute of every day. Finding and following these Twitter accounts can be an arduous task. TripTwit city guides make it easy to take advantage of real-time savings - simply select your city from the website and see an instant stream of relevant local deals.
Founder Naveen Thattil saw an opportunity to organize Twitter data in a different way so that anyone could easily find local deals as they happen. Key to this, was filtering out tweets that were not important. "Most people think Twitter is a bunch of noise - and they're right, but there are also some hidden gems of information. TripTwit.com allows you to easily find the local tweets that matter," said Thattil. A recent search for New York City yielded, in part, the following information: a free performance by Al Pacino in Central Park, a SOHO sushi restaurant having a special on eel overnighted from Japan, a Chelsea hotel offering special discount weekend rates and a famous designer label having a limited-time sample sale.
