“We chose the app to document Seattle’s popular Seafair summer celebration, and it immediately enhanced the way we report and get the news out,” said Jenni Hogan, reporter for Seattle based CBS affiliate KIRO and BlackBerry beta user. “During Seafair, the plane called Fat Albert, did tricks above Lake Washington in Seattle. Inside I tweeted video of the experience to thousands below as they watched the air show overhead. It was a real blast to bring the viewers with me and share that once in a lifetime opportunity through TwitVid. With only TwitVid and my BlackBerry I had my own “crew” that allowed me to quickly and easily record and tweet videos on the fly. During Seafair I uploaded my videos to in seconds and my followers could start watching within minutes. lets me build a much closer relationship with my followers and strengthens the relationships the station has with our viewers. I use every day. It works great for me.”
