Millions of people use Twitter on a daily basis to share their thoughts, ideas and convictions on a multitude of subjects. All these tweets combined together can be seen as the collective intelligence of the Twitter community.
Our goal is to find, gather and save this wonderful thing that is called popular wisdom. In one sentence, The Tweet Watch wants to be your daily source of tweets that matter. Since we believe in freedom of speech and democracy, it is through counting your votes that we base our effort in finding interesting tweets.
Twitter is more than just celebrities
While Twitter was built with the intention of giving voice to every single person, it is celebs that are getting most of the attention. By following celebrities, chances are that people will get exposed to stuff that will be covered on TV and mainstream media anyways.
Also, celebrities tend to tweet for promotional reasons. In other words, celebrities usually tweet with the intention of gaining something out of it, rather than simply sharing their genuine feelings. Our view is that following and retweeting celebrities isn't the best way in which Twitter can be used.
People care about what people talk about
We firmly believe that people are interested in sharing views with other people. We see Twitter as a place for people to communicate their feelings and life experiences to others. As a result, we focus our effort in 'catching' those moments where ordinary people tweet about something that gets a lot of reaction from the Twitter community. We believe that those everyone involved in this process deserve applause because all of this can happen only when people get involved.
