TOP Apps for “Live tweeting” your PR events
Cover an event in real time on Twitter
The “live tweet”, also called “LT”, allows you to cover an event – a product launch, exhibition or conference – in real time, and so achieve greater visibility. Through the mechanism of viral marketing, communication around an event is both amplified and more engaging, providing the opportunity or people not physically present to follow the experience “live”. Here are some tools to facilitate event display and visibility, useful for the development of “Twitter networking”.

3. Visible Tweets:

This application allows Tweeps to register on a list so that event organizers and other participants know who they are on Twitter.

6. Hashtag Battle:
A great tool for comparing the popularity of two hashtags. A graph displays the number of tweets containing each hashtag, with results also available for a specific timeframe (last hour, day, week or month). This can be useful for amplifying the voices of the audience physically present and also those following the event via the “live tweeting”.
