February 12, 2010 - San Francisco CA - Stone Design aka Big Stone Phone today shipped tweetTV - a new way to look at Twitter tweets on your iPhone or iPod Touch. From the makers of Twittelator Pro comes an exciting new app which lets you surf channels and find exciting tweeters and lists to preview and follow.
Designed for both expert and newcomer twitter users alike, tweetTV provides instant access to the most interesting people on Twitter. Using TV as a metaphor, tweetTV lets you find, surf and program channels of tweets.
"tweetTV addresses the biggest challenge facing newcomers to Twitter: how to find Tweeple worth following for their areas of interest, " said Andrew Stone, CEO of Stone Design. "By letting you browse categories and subcategories of topics, and then previewing superlists of the top tweeters in that area, you can quickly find fascinating content tailored to your tastes."
Leveraging the power of TList's Superlists, tweetTV lets you find the top tweeters in these main categories: Sports, Arts & Entertainment, Business & Professions, Food & Dining, Health, Living, Politics & Causes, Regional, and Tech & Science. Within each of those topics, there are many sub-topics; for example, in Sports: Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Fighting, Martial Arts, College Sports, Cricket, Cycling, Equestrian, Extreme Sports, Fishing & Hunting, Football, General, Golf, Hockey, Motorsports, Rugby, Running & Endurance, Skiing and Snowboarding, Soccer, Sports Fans, Tennis and Water Sports.
Even without a Twitter account, tweetTV can display tweets and search channels, so anyone who wants to experience Twitter can get started today.
"tweetTV and Twittelator Pro are the first iPhone apps to integrate and exploit our powerful Superlists," said Jonathan Glick, CEO of tlist.com.
