Taking a Peek at Twitter

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Taking a Peek at Twitter. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Twitter continues to grow and is being used as a business as well as personal networking tool. And now Peek....which came out with a simple handheld wireless email device about a year ago....is out with TwitterPeek. It lets you stay connected with Twitter on a dedicated shirt pocket sized device. But with Twitter apps available for a variety of smartphones, who will use the TwitterPeek? CEO and Founder Amol Sarva...

"One of them is people who actually are having to keep a lot of energy going behind their Twitter profile. Maybe they're a café or a nightclub or a small business that's using Twitter for marketing. The second group of people who we think is interested...and this is a pretty vast group...is the group of people who have tried Twitter out, kind of think it's neat, would love to be more into it, but are not really able to get excited about it sitting there at their computer."

199 dollars gets you theTwitterPeek and free wireless service...period. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
