SAN FRANCISCO--()--TwitVid.com, the fastest and easiest way to add video to Twitter, today announced that it has been selected as the default video tweeting platform for TweetDeck. TwitVid.com will serve as the video service across all existing TweetDeck products, as well as all new products released by TweetDeck in 2010. The partnership will provide users, for the first time ever, with video tweeting capabilities within TweetDeck’s flagship desktop application.
“TweetDeck users are the most active on Twitter and we have found that they readily adopt new trends”
“This partnership presents an enormous opportunity for us,” said Mo Al Adham, co-founder of TwitVid.com. “As the leading third-party Twitter application, TweetDeck has the ability to reach and influence Twitter users on a multi-platform scale. We look forward to being one of TweetDeck’s key services and providing their users with the best possible video tweeting experience.”
TweetDeck will integrate the TwitVid service in the next iteration of their desktop product, expected to be released within the next month. With the release of the next generation TweetDeck iPhone application, TwitVid.com will become the new default, video-tweeting application. TwitVid will also be the default application for TweetDeck’s soon-to-be-released Android application.
“TweetDeck users are the most active on Twitter and we have found that they readily adopt new trends,” said Iain Dodsworth, Founder and CEO of TweetDeck. “The integration of video on Twitter is becoming an important part of the Twitter experience, and we expect this trend to accelerate. We were excited to establish this partnership, as the TwitVid platform enables us to provide TweetDeck users the best video-tweeting experience.”
TwitVid.com gives users the ability to upload, view and share videos in both HD and SD sooner than any other app, which is critical in the Twitter environment where people want to post videos as quickly as possible, but don’t want to sacrifice quality, reliability and ease of use. Celebrities, musical artists, and professional athletes have chosen TwitVid.com as their preferred mobile video tweeting service, including: Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Demi Lovato, The Jonas Brothers, The Used, Dane Cook, Demi Moore, Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails, Alexa Chung, Ciara, Stephen Fry, Mary J Blige, The Los Angeles Lakers, the NBA and the PGA. TwitVid is currently hosting contests for AC/DC and 36 Mafia.
TwitVid.com is produced by EatLime, Inc., a technology company uniquely capable of helping consumers take advantage of the convergence of social communications, mobile smart phones and video. The company was founded in 2008 by Waterloo University students Mo Al Adham and Adil Lalani in their dorm room. They wanted to share videos with friends, but were frustrated because other websites and services couldn’t upload fast enough and weren’t developed to ensure the highest quality experience for online social interaction. They envisioned a peer-to-peer model for fast and easy video sharing. As a result, they developed the Instant Media Engine which is the only server-based software to allow high quality media files to be viewed by recipients as soon as the uploading process begins. TwitVid.com delivers the fastest, highest quality video to be viewed on either a mobile device or any computer platform. TwitVid can be found at www.twitvid.com and @twitvid.
