GroupTweet is a very interesting service. It lets you have your own private communication with your group on Twitter. If you have a group of friends on Twitter, and all of you want to have an option for frequent private communication, GroupTweet lets you do that. Now, it might be sounding quite surprising that how can you have a private communication among a group on Twitter. That’s where the GroupTweet comes in.
GroupTweet has devised a very ingenious, and but still extremely simple way to enable private group communication on Twitter. Let’s say you have a group of 10 friends, and all of you want to have group communication. You start with creating a new Twitter account. This will be the central account for your group. After this, you authorize GroupTweet to use this account. Then, you and your friends should follow this new Twitter account. You are all set for group communication now.[subscribe-to-us]
GroupTweet will follow back all your friends from that new Twitter account that you created. Now, whenever someone in your group want to send a private message to entire group, he/she will just send a direct message to the new Twitter account that you created. GroupTweet monitors the DMs that Twitter account receives, and posts them as Tweets. As all your friends are following that Twitter account, the tweets will appear in their timeline. You can send direct messages using any Free Twitter client. If you do not want your group communication to be open to public, then you can make this Twitter account private.
I really like the concept of GroupTweet, and its simplicity of use. Some of the potential uses of GroupTweet can be instant communication between team members, communication during events, and just occasional group communication between friends.
GroupTweet has a completely free version with all the features mentioned above. If you have a group of friends, GroupTweet is worth trying.
