Twitter has something new on its mind. The social network is considering the delivery of breaking news notifications via @eventparrot. This will benefit Twitter and lead to a rise in its popularity.

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.
