Twitter Mobilizing Sharing

Twitter is also boosting its mobile interaction but mostly the news mobilizing attention on the chirpy company is the launch of its own Twitter button and the impact of it on Tweetmeme.

Mobile interaction with Twitter is becoming easier than ever. Now the micro-blogging site enables non-Twitter users to follow accounts of their choice via SMS. The service, called "Fast Follow", was launched alongside a couple of other mobile facilitation functions such as SMS alerts (and its appending keep-it-quiet option) or latest Tweet SMS access.


Truth is, interaction with Twitter in general is becoming easier with the launch of the company's own Twitter button.



Until now, only third-party buttons were available, with Tweetmeme leading the pack. Now with the shiny new official Twitter button, Tweetmeme is shifting to other skies. But rest assured, as it explains on its blog, it will partner with Twitter in its official sharing button adventure as well as launch other initiatives.
