Sick and tired of the same old, boring text-heavy Twitter hashtag search? Here comes Sees.aw to make keeping up with your fave hashtags both more visually appealing and productive.
Hashtags, hashtags, hashtags. What’s in a hashtag? A whole heck of a lot, actually. Searching hashtags during a live event allows you to find others with a shared interest, archive notes and soundbites, share multimedia content to name a few. In the past, viewing a live scrolling hashtag from your desktop meant following plain text. While you can get information, it is pretty one dimensional and doesn’t allow the incorporation of robust content people share.
Seesaw gives you a different way to: view hashtagged content, archive it (as in “saw”) and share it with others. Since we now live in a social visual (read: Pinterest) world, images done well make all the difference. If people using your hashtag include a photo or video in their tweet, it shows up in the scrolling feed. And don’t worry, if the hashtag is moving too fast, you can pause the feed (along with other commands) from the left hand column.
Want to highlight an additional key phrase within the hashtag search? You can do that, too. Seesaw shows those tweets with a highlighted box.
My fave feature about this app is the ability to save and share content from the hashtag search. You can archive all of your favorite tweets to a single page which you can then make accessible to anyone else.
Have you been waiting for an app like Seesaw? Use something else? Let me know.
Thank you to the awesome Ted Rubin (@tedrubin) for passing this along to me.
