Now and again you come across something that’s just so cool you wonder why no-one did it earlier. Tonight I found one, thanks to Kevin Sherman – bubbletweet.
Allowing you to record a video snippet and then have it displayed on your Twitter page for any new followers or visitors to see, bubbletweet is simple and fun – always a good combination.
It also has a lot of potential for both personal and corporate branding. Imagine being able to tell followers your latest news or information, but instead of tweeting it you can say it?
It also offers a further personal touch to the already social Twitter experience – giving your followers a look into who the person behind the bio is.
Since bubbletweet uses a custom URL to host your video message on, the best way to use it is as a link from your blog, website or email signature. Once your visitors have seen the video and the bubble window closes, it then reverts to your normal Twitter URL so you control its use.
I’ve seen this application used on blogs before, but not Twitter. It’s a great little tool and I recommend you check it out, as well as?Kevin’s Twitter profile for an example as well as other apps he’s created, while I disappear to record my own message. Look forward to seeing yours.
