In today’s disconnected world, social media has rendered actual awareness of one another to be of incredibly diminishing importance.
Whereas we used to interact with one another frequently, we now spend our days hidden behind our phone screens, unable or unwilling to engage with each other. It is far easier to make a post on Instagram or Twitter and then carry on, apparently satisfied that you have made you social contribution for the day.
It would all be so much easier if we could interact with one another again.
Thankfully, IgTwit exists to make that a reality.
With IgTwit, you can view all the Instagram and Twitter posts made in your local area, either in a list based on most recent posts, or on a map view that you can shift and change depending on what you want to see.
Considering this is a small app, its map functionality is surprisingly decent, offering easy scrolling and incredibly fast updating as you move it, making it seamless to check both your local area and then the nearest major city in a matter of seconds.
Once you have viewed these Tweets and Insta… Grams, you can then open them up and follow them on your own account, making it easier than ever to actually connect with other people in your local area.[sc name=”quote” text=”Once you have viewed these Tweets and Insta… Grams, you can then open them up and follow them on your own account, making it easier than ever to actually connect with other people in your local area.”]
However, it isn’t just limited to local people’s posts, as you can also search through local deals in your area. If you use the app enough, the app will actually send you new deals as they are created, offering you the chance to make money through savings just by utilizing the app.
You can even actively earn money when you receive a targeted discount, as a result of IgTwit’s policy of ad revenue sharing with its users.
Though the use of IgTwit might seem limited at first, it offers you a brand new way to interact with the people around you. Instead of each individual Twitter or Instagram user being a faceless person on the internet, you can actually utilize your local area and engage with those around you.
Additionally, IgTwit seems like it could be fantastic for business use, as you could create targeted ads and communication with those around you, possibly finding influencers to help promote your brand.[sc name=”quote” text=”Additionally, IgTwit seems like it could be fantastic for business use, as you could create targeted ads and communication with those around you, possibly finding influencers to help promote your brand.”]
Though it might seem strange to want to view Instagram and Twitter on a map interface, the combination of a surprisingly good map view and the fact that it is a different social media experience makes IgTwit an incredibly useful app to have.
You might make some friends in your area, or in the very least save some money on local businesses.
Social media on a map never seemed so useful.
[review pros=”An intricate map system that is extremely user friendly. A new form of social media that you didn’t even know you wanted.” cons=”There aren’t a lot of deals available at the moment.” score=9]
