More – Follow People At Events In Real Time

  • June 4, 2009

Almost.atWho needs TV channels any longer? That is what one might end up thinking if given just a brief overview of the many web-based services that are available. Twitter tops the list when it comes to news nowadays, and the fact that recent events made it into public knowledge through the popular platform can not be denied.

It makes sense, then, that a new service which groups together not only Twitter and YouTube but also Vimeo and TwitPic becomes available.

That is exactly what this site stands for. Basically, it lets anybody have his pick from events and visualize the disparate media together. There are two main categories – one that details events that are live now, and one which gathers the most recent events. When it comes to the events that are live now, you are also presented with information like the number or active viewers at any given time, and the number of overall views.

All in all, this is an interesting option for the ones who wish to stay fully abreast of the most recent developments – the ones that are shaping up the world, when they are taking place. If that sounds like your cup of tea, simply visit the site and choose any of the provided events to get started.
