GroupTweet will work well for any brand that needs to extend their message through advocates authorized by GroupTweet. Our media company, The Breaking News Network, is the largest hyperlocal media network devoted to social good, and unique in providing a way for any community newsmaker to get their word out through our city feeds. Over 4,000 Twitter feeds - for example, city politicians, civic groups, nonprofits and performing arts organizations - are authorized to share content on our 400 city feeds.

Spike makes it simple to remain in touch with your peers and teams. It is simple, and searching for team members in the search tab is quick. Moreover, this tool makes screen sharing easier for presentations. The software is incredibly user-friendly and simple to use. Spike's versatility is enhanced via instant texting through this app. The visual and audio call quality is outstanding. Except for cloud storage, Spike does not connect with other applications. While there is a solid rationale for this, since everything - calendar, notes, tasks, team communication - can be made in the app, it loses some value if you prefer, for example, Microsoft To-Do and OneNote or Google Projects and Keep to organize your tasks and notes. I'd like to see a less costly email, calendar, and contacts-only subscription for solitary users.

Pros
Discontinued Products
  • Since Twitter is a vehicle for breaking news, our correspondents in each of our 400 cities uses a simple hashtag to syndicate their local news and events. It is simple to use and correspondents don't have to do anything differently to share their messages across our city feeds.
  • We can mobilize our correspondents to collectively promote news and events that impact the public good. For example, we can develop advocate networks to support initiatives like crowdfunding campaigns

  • There is an uniform experience because it consolidates email accounts.
  • Spike's chat-like interface is its main selling feature.
  • Files may be easily shared by connecting to cloud services.

Cons
Discontinued Products
  • GroupTweet would be awesome if the service for collaboratively distributing info extended to Facebook, G+ and other social networks. However, that's probably something out of their control to develop.

  • I wish the calendar was more robust and provided a comprehensive look. I'd also want to have multiple windows open.
  • The inability to sync settings across devices. Configuring several devices with the same settings takes effort, particularly when it comes to custom IMAP.
  • Email Signature in HTML is still not taught as the capability, which I'd love to see.

GroupTweet is simply the best way to syndicate messages across Twitter. It takes time to build the foundation of authorized users, but once the user base understood the power we provided to get their message out, it has become institutionally utilized.

There is no other product like GroupTweet! It is simple and takes no extra resources to use it, just add a hashtag. We are unusual in that we use GroupTweet for over 400 Twitter accounts. It would also work well for single accounts with a number of collaborative users.

Return on Investment
Discontinued Products
  • Since The Breaking News Network is noncommercial, we use GroupTweet to extend our facility to support the community by functioning as Twitter based bulletin boards. By offering a free and valuable service to the community instead of a pushy sales person trying to sell advertising, we create a lot of good will.
  • In the future, we will use GroupTweet to get advocate networks to support crowdfunding initiatives we bring forward with our new crowdfunding marketing company, BNN Funding. For more information on how we develop massive advocate networks, BNNFunding.com

  • However, the app is too tiny to accurately quantify its return on investment (ROI).
  • Multiple times, I've gotten to zero emails in my inbox.
  • It was easy to communicate without exchanging long texts.
