Twitter's meteoric rise has resulted in a vast number of tweets—short bursts of text, links and pictures. Brands, event managers, speakers, educators and individuals are looking for ways to filter the torrent of tweets and Tweetwally, a new web application we developed, gives users more powerful ways to use Twitter than ever.
"We believe in building reusable tools to address our customers’ needs," says Nancy Lyons. "For us, it began with custom, projected ‘walls’ of Twitter searches at our company parties. People loved it, and the next thing we knew, clients were asking us to build more of them."
Tweetwally is a Twitter power tool, a way to save and customize search results and present them in different formats—at a specific URL (your own, or at tweetwally.com), on a projector (at a conference, party or other gathering), or on an iPhone. Users can immediately experiment with different searches and enjoy a continuously updating stream of new information from Twitter, updated before their eyes. A Twitter account is all that is needed to get started.
“We can't wait to see what people will do with it. We launched the first version, and now we'll listen to our users for what's next," says Lyons.

Launched at Clockwork's recent Friday the 13th Party, a Tweetwally-powered tweetwall was projected in several areas and made quite an impression. Tweetwalls can be excellent conversation starters at a social gathering, and are great at speaking events, both for encouraging dialogue between the audience and speaker, and for making far-flung viewers feel closer to the event.
