SPitter – A Twitter for SharePoint

For those of you who have not heard of Twitter (I doubt if there is anyone), Twitter is a free online service for friends and family to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

Though Twitter is a simple tool for public microblogging, it doesn’t fit well into the context of work-related collaboration. The corporate version of microblogging will have to be a tool that is integrated into an application that the corporate uses for collaboration. In IOTAP we extensively use our Sharepoint intranet for collaboration, so we have built a Twitter for Sharepoint solution. We named it SPitter to indicate that it is based on Sharepoint.

When our employees want to share their status, a message or a link to others within our organization they just post it to the SPitter area and the message gets added to the updates section.

After setting up SPitter we are able to collaborate with our colleagues in an effective way as we now have the up to the minute status of what each one of them is working on.
