Twitter Experiment @eventparrot Explores Breaking News Notifications

Twitter to Experiment Breaking News Notifications via @eventparrot

After its former experiment known as @MagicRecs, Twitter has begun another venture which just might be successful. This one supplements the original. Termed @eventparrot, it consists of direct messages that inform you regarding what is going on in the rest of the world. 

@MagicRecs used to lend people personalized advice. And while it is still partially rumor-based, this news has some solid proof behind it. Many people from Twitter’s staff are currently using it. The service bears an uncanny resemblance to @BreakingNews. And the good thing is that it all gets deposited in your inbox. The idea behind it is to make your life more manageable and easy especially as far as news is concerned. 

As Twitter approaches the date of its IPO, it needs to prove its worth to its user base. This is why it has turned to this foray into news delivery. It is literally a step out of passivity into active engagement with the culture consumers. The service though completely new already has over 3000 followers. To remain in the know, this is the best platform

Twitter has gone beyond the ordinary into the extraordinary through its @eventparrot service. This is definitely the next big thing that will radically transform Twitter from a social site to a personalized web of the latest information and data.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
