Pixable already done a great job by aggregating the pictures and videos one’s friends on Facebook. Nowadays, it is trying to step into an added real-time domain by integrating Twitter into its code. It utilize Twitter’s own photo service, also the third-party ones like TwitPic, yFrog, Instagram, and YouTube then draws them into a single feed that we could browse.
The press release asserts that it is the primary way to look at the photos and videos shared through tweets” and its CEO and Co founder Inaki Berenguer noted that there is no way to do such thing on Twitter. He added that there is a way, but the process is too complex that people would just tend to shy away from using it. It takes too much time for such a simple task.
By unraveling the photos into an organized feed of its own, Pixable had turned Twitter stream into a wholly image-based experience. The company now imagines that the application would only appeals to serious users of Twitter. Since this is the time wherein Twitter’s used to break, and spread news, such as the shocking East Coast earthquake that occurs this week. This could mean a valuable tool to gain access to imagery and video from the location wherein the event is taking place.
Cofounder and COO Andres Blank clarified that this is what Pixable is trying to do all along. They plan on even being more relevant, managing to pull in photos from a selection of places such as Google+, and Facebook. The company wants to be the destination to enjoy and find out about social photos. Also by being the central hub for that is going to enable them provide the most complete and personalized real-time look at the world. Blank not worried that Twitter is going to pull the plug on their little project. They believe that Twitter is not going to focus on pictures and videos. They immediately saw the advantage of being able to make the user experience wholly tailored to visual media.
The advantage of incorporating Twitter for Pixable is that it does highlights the real-time news stream outdo what Facebook does. Twitter’s open “broadcast” nature only means that you can easily gain access to imagery from the people, who you never consider being your friend. The significance of the Pixable experience is also, photo can indeed communicate quicker than words.
Apple’s iOS 5 software for the iPhone and iPad is also unpaid, coming with deeply woven Twitter relation, meant that they are going to see an explosion of distributing photos and videos via Twitter.
