Founders David and Stuart share their perspective on Phweet and what makes it different, in a broad-ranging discussion triggered by Andy Abramson’s smart little experiment using Phweet on Aircell.
The discussions included a broadranging technical disucssion that has been further fullowed up. Here’s two illustrations – Dan York tells us why you can use Phweet when Skype is blocked and TringMe’s CEO Yusuf Motivala shares more about Tringme’s traffic platform.
Thank you all!
We’ve been asked several times whether Phweet is a noun or a verb. We’d like to think it’s both. Phweetisms we like, even more!
Here’s a collection of user-generated comments around Phweet afloat in the Twitter world and the blogosphere:
Twitter’s curry; it is called Phweet: TeachEng.Us
A CB radio – space for spontaneous conference calling: Chinarut
Ruthlessly Simplified Disintermediation – Jim Courtney at Skype Journal
Jon Husband at the FastForward Blog:Twitter Conjoined With Instant Calling (TM) = Phweet
They said it couldn’t be done. AirCell said they would block calls from aircraft. What and who flys and tweets at 35000ft? @Andy Abramson tweeted a little while ago breaking the news that you can talk now on AirCell using Phweet. AirCell had recently announced that WiFi would soon be on all aircraft although no telephony. Well they got that wrong! Phweet!
