Today we were pleasantly surprised by a fantastic full blown coverage of our “Tweeps Around” Augmented Reality channel in the Huffington Post. The fantastic thing about this is that we didn’t even contact them about a press story but they spotted it themselves. What is even greater is that if you read the story you will find that they’ve done thorough research.
We just want to say… thanks Huffington Post for this great article!
Tweeps Around Puts Tweets On The World Around You
Twitter already lets you tag tweets with location, but what if you took a step further? Tweeps Around lets you see the tweets from users nearest to you and what they’re saying, adding a layer of micromessaged instant connectivity to your next walk around the block.
What it is: Tweeps Around lets you see tweets in your general proximity through an augmented reality layer that puts realtime information directly on top of the world around you, as seen through your phone’s camera.
