Tbilisi, Georgia, March 31, 2012 --(PR.com
Initially, robots were created to obey our orders and attend to our outrageous needs. Over the years they have indeed become integral part of our fascinating lives; however, nowadays robots have been reduced to simple tools that seem neither intelligent nor artificial. The new application developed by "LeavingStone" - "Twittus," attempts to stand up for its right to serve humanity with a voice of C-3PO, wit of HAL9000, tenacity of R2-D2, functionality of JARVIS, and loyalty of Sancho Panza.
Idea and Philosophy behind "Twittus"
"The idea behind this application was to create a better tool to connect Twitter with Facebook in a way that would correspond to real-time changes of the open graph platform. In the decade of social media, creation and distribution of consumer generated information amasses such amount of data (per person / per day) that can hardly be consumed totally. An additional piece of information in the chaotic Facebook news/posts stream brings more distortion and obscurity rather than incremental value for the user. Status quo organically created the need for feed curation so that one would clearly separate certain posts from the rest - this is what "Twittus" is all about. The philosophy behind the loyal servant is to tidy up users’ Facebook Timeline and present tweets in a more informative and aesthetically appealing manner," says Vakho Vakhtangishvili, CEO at LeavingStone.
"Twittus" is user’s loyal servant that integrates Twitter feeds directly into the Facebook timeline. In addition to making tweets visible to Facebook friends and subscribers, this app neatly aggregates all Twitter activity [including retweets and mentions] into a separate box on the profile page. With each new tweet, "Twittus" instantly updates the feed and brings it up on the timeline.
The reason "Twittus" serves better
"Despite the fact the solution is extremely simple and obvious, Open Graph integration really makes a big difference. Thanks to that the application simply works better than Twitter’s native solution." - says Vakho Vakhtangishvili, CEO at LeavingStone.
"Twittus" aggregates all the tweets in a Facebook Timeline box, thus they are no longer mixed up with the rest of the content. This is a very important feature for those who tweet frequently, contributing to sheer chaos on the Facebook wall.
Combining the best of the two different worlds, "Twittus" possesses a timeline of its own for the Twitter feeds. One can navigate tweets by the time they were posted and besides that tweets are automatically collected in distinct boxes according to months and years – a handy feature that is not available even in the native Twitter interface.
It doesn't have to be all about you. If you believe that you are not smart or witty enough deserving your Facebook friends' attention, you can easily link "Twittus" to any desirable Twitter account, and stream their updates live to your timeline.
An additional way "Twittus" is superior to Twitter’s native solution as it manages to publish retweets and mentions on the Facebook Timeline, apart from simple tweets.
The philosophy of curating and organizing tweets on Facebook Timeline is presented in a creative way emphasizing that the application is user’s loyal servant – it does blue-collar work on behalf of a Master and it tries to maintain a positive attitude. In order to recreate the full experience of having a special servant, user interface has been equipped with human language. The user doesn’t accept or agree any usual terms and condition. On the contrary, "Twittus" tries to communicate personally to make the tedious process of signing up for the app entertaining.
While it might not be the giant step forward towards robot rights activism, "Twittus" still represents a neat way to organize Twitter activity on Facebook and is a handy tool for feed curation. Besides, "Twittus" is only a week old and public is not yet aware of its capabilities. In the meantime, it remains focused on self-development and in the nearest future "Twittus" is determined to fetch several Twitter account feeds and even certain #hashtags at the same time.
