By nature, the visual things are much easier to capture and understand than text-based service. Video is the best example of how a good visualization can effectively communicate information and become more helpful in “selling” ideas. YouTube does not need any introduction, it offers collection of latest and past videos of worldwide news or things. In this digital world, list of video sharing has been increased and TwitVid is one of them that was once regarded as the “TwitPic of video” and now it has been rebranded as Telly. Under the new name, TwitVid has widened their networks in the directions of video discovery, sharing and social networking, and permits users to collect and share video with friends. If you are a user of Pinterest, then you will really love this redesigned website which looks like Pinterest for video!
Telly.com is a rename of Twitvid and it has been launched on June 2012 and become social video-discovery site. The rebrand is not precisely a surprise because in December, Twitvid had introduced a renovated version of its site for reflecting new focus. Mo Al Adham is the co-founder of Twitvid/Telly which described that on telly, people will be able to discover content, get entertainment, video, and share their own stories via video. Telly creates smart social suggestions that suit your interests to generate steady, dynamic stream of personalized video.
TwitVid has been working from 2009 and during this time period thousands of celebrities and millions of people used to upload videos about their lives. For the past four years, Twitvid worked only as video-sharing service for Twitter, but with new name it attracts users to upload their own videos, explore friend’s videos as well as access content from sites like YouTube, Vimeo, CNN and ESPN. It is the best place to communicate with people who share your same interests in video and entertainment. It becomes the most useful for video watchers, creators, publishers and syndicators.
