SIME, northern Europe’s largest conference about the Internet and digital opportunities, opens up its doors in Stockholm. During Tuesday and Wednesday, 1600 guests will listen to and discuss with 60 speakers from the worlds of media, telecom, communication, technology and finance, participate in workshops and meet each other to exchange thoughts and ideas about digital opportunities.
Among the speakers are Niklas Zennström, the founder of Skype, Rikard Steiber, Global Marketing Director Mobile & Social at Google and Jacob de Geer, CEO and founder of iZettle.
Here at Twingly we are very happy that SIME has chosen to use our Twingly Live tool to show the realtime feed of tweets from and about #Sime11. So if you can’t attend the event but would like to stay up to date about what’s happening at the conference venue in the Swedish capital, click here and get the stream of tweets as they are being published.
The Twingly Live stream is also shown at the conference!
And the coolest thing: It’s also included in the free SIME iPhone app, and even there tweets are updating in realtime. We hope you like it!
The realtime web is very useful when it comes to following and commenting on realtime IRL events like concerts, conferences, tv broadcasts or similar. We also believe this will be one of the main usages of Twingly Channels in the future.
So, we developed a neat little backchannel solution called Twingly Live until Channels is ready for that kind of usage. And it’s awesome.
Twingly Live is a realtime Twitter stream for a certain keyword. There’s no delay between Twitter and Twingly Live, so when you’re posting something at Twitter it will show instantly in Twingly Live. It’s easy to understand why we thought Twingly Live was a good name.
Martin explained why Twingly Live is important in our press release:
“Twitter is a fantastic service but tweets often reach the receiver with a few seconds delay, which may seem paradoxical when Twitter for many is the very definition of the real-time web,” said Martin Källström. “Latency greatly disrupts the flow of the dialogue, the same way as phone calls over long distances used to be uncomfortable. It’s also difficult to have rapid group conversations. Twingly Live solves all these problems. It is much faster than Twitter Search, for example, and can be moderated by the owner.”
Twingly Live has already been used at some events and will be the official backchannel solution for SIME on 11-12 November. Other events that have used it are the EU-conference Visby Agenda, the Social Democratic Party Congress and Really Realtime Conference.
