AMSTERDAM, and AUSTIN, Texas -- GyPSii, the leading real time location-enabled social media platform, today launched a new app named Tweetsii™. The app epitomizes the real time web and connects people with places and networks, by bridging the Twitter experience with mobile social media, the social graph, location, and contextual mobile-based search: all in the palm of your hand, accessible anytime and anywhere. Initial availability will be in the Apple Appstore for iPhone, followed by Android and Blackberry platforms.

“discovered a product I think reveals a true post-Web 2.0 real time web vision. It goes beyond Web 2.0, mash-ups, website-based search, and delivers the app that to me, epitomizes the ‘State of Now.’ I believe Tweetsii is the next big step in the real time web experience.”

Tweetsii™ is a radical new way to use social media and the mobile Internet that breaks down the barrier between the real place-based world and the digital world, providing a real time connection between a user’s social graph, places around them, and Twitter. It is a real time app that supports a mobile lifestyle, with user created tweets, images, reviews, comments, checkins, tips, and more. It builds an aggregated real world index of places, not a corporate created index, with updates from Twitter users and location-based services, including GyPSii, Gowalla and Foursquare, among others. All content contributes to a place-based index that delivers real time, mobile, location-specific content creation and search to connect users with the people, places, activities and ideas they’re interested in.

The application gives Twitter users a richer experience by allowing them to tweet, check-in, send alerts and tips, create places, and geo-tag them with comments, photos and other rich media content. Updates made via Tweetsii appear in users’ Twitter feed making it simple to share content with friends and followers. It’s inherently mobile, and in addition to the expected Twitter Timeline features, it delivers real-time “PlaceStreams” and “EventStreams” to users, directly tied to their location and social-graph connections.
