Houston, Texas (PRWEB) March 23, 2010
With the ever-growing popularity of Twitter, Houston-based business group Agora Technology, Inc. has purchased two web sites that will greatly increase the ease-of-use for Twitter end-users. Agora Technology will re-launch the websites, TweepML (http://www.TweepML.org) and Qwitter (http://www.UseQwitter.com), with a host of features heretofore unavailable on the popular social networking site Twitter.
The first site, TweepML, is an extensible, open standard format that allows users to easily manage, share and follow groups of Twitter users ("Tweeps"). TweepML enables users to easily follow a number of interesting Twitter users at once from a host of popular lists including ‘Inspiration,’ ‘Conservative Tweeps’ and 'Digital Media News Sources’ among many others in categories ranging from ‘Advertising’ and ‘Art’ to ‘Celebrities,’ ‘Sports’ and ‘Technology.’
TweepML is available as an add-on to existing websites enabling users to follow an entire list with just a single click. In the coming weeks, Agora Technology will be redesigning the site and adding more functionality to enhance the user experience, giving members more opportunities to expand their social media reach.
The second site, Qwitter, was created to catch “Twitter quitters”; members who choose to stop following a designated Twitter account. It’s as simple as entering your Twitter name and corresponding e-mail address and users will be alerted when someone quits following them on Twitter.
As part of the site’s re-launch, Agora Technology will be offering a number of premium services on the Qwitter site including faster email notifications, without ads, and the ability to share your message with thousands of users per day by being a featured user.
“These options are great for users who want to generate that extra exposure and for businesses that rely on quick notifications to adjust marketing approaches,” said Brad Harris, President of Agora Technology, Inc.
“Both sites in fact are catching on quickly because they offer key features that Twitter does not,” added Harris. “We immediately saw a way to fill a great void in the Twitter marketplace with these two sites and the response from the social networking community has been nothing short of phenomenal.”
“We see enormous growth potential for TweepML and Qwitter in the near future,” said Kuba Szczypiorski, Marketing Vice President with Agora Technology, Inc. “We are extremely excited about the new features being deployed for both sites and the myriad of benefits they will offer our loyal users.”
TweepML and UseQwitter are not affiliated with Twitter.
Qwitter (http://www.UseQwitter.com) allows users to sign up with their email address and Twitter name to receive an email anytime somebody stops following them on Twitter. Qwitter has 1000’s of members who were amassed in just the first 8 months of being launched. In the coming weeks, Agora Technology will be adding a premium service for a small monthly fee enabling users to get their notifications much faster. This fee will also place the users in a set number of emails that are sent out to the current Qwitter population; enabling them to advertise themselves or their business to thousands of people in a matter of seconds. Qwitter boasts around 24,000 unique views per month with 44,000 page views.
TweepML (http://www.TweepML.org) was originally created by Marcelo Calbucci as a method for users to easily follow numerous Twitter users with just a single click. It also defines a protocol/format called TweepML (Tweep Markup Language) that allows applications and services to exchange lists of Twitter users in a standard format. TweepML allows users to directly follow the individual members of a Twitter List, instead of following the list itself, which permits users to select just the users they are interested in following. TweepML has been described as a more functional alternative to Twitter Lists because each TweepML list comes with its own URL making it search engine friendly and easily shared across the Internet. To date over 250,000 lists have been created or imported on TweepML and over 13,200,000 connections made. TweepML averages about 143,000 visits per month with approximately 450,000 page views and ranks approximately 27,000 in worldwide internet traffic according to Alexa Website Rankings.
