It’s been great seeing the evolution of twemes.com! Over the past several weeks, we’ve had many people (and groups) pound on it and give us some great feedback. Thanks for all the feature suggestions and tweaks…keep them coming!
What has truly intrigued me, however, is how people are creating adhoc and instant communities. The most obvious example is at conferences, where audience members can twitter about panelists, have sidebar conversations, and generally just connect with the other people present. But, we’re also starting to see “Flash Communities” emerge around quite short or fleeting events of interest, e.g. the Oscars tonight. Currently, there is a long list of twitterers getting ready to twitter the red carpet and tweet their comments using the #aa08 tag. I’m sure many in this group may not follow each other’s tweets post-Oscar, but it’s cool to see how twemes.com is enabling twitterers to quickly pick a tag and create an “Online Flash Mob” around an event of interest, only to disburse and move on to the next event of interest.
Have you participated in a “Online Flash Mob”? What did you think of it? Did you make some interesting new friends? Do tell!
