Texting in public

This is a great version of a great idea @sippey. It'll be even more exciting once groups get on board to talk about topics - this would be incredible for TV casts, group interviews/conversations, or just people who feel they're maybe kinda smart and funny (i.e., everyone). As is, it's already to the point where regular texting feels a little like a letdown once I get used to getting hearts for my texts. Well done!

This is the coolest social product I've seen since Periscope. Already craving a desktop client. :D

@caseynewton I was thinking the same thing. Desktop typing so much faster than iPhone poking, especially important for those covering live events.

@rrhoover yeah, I can easily see this becoming a quick-and-dirty liveblogging tool. Existing options (ScribbleLive) are garbage

@caseynewton interacting with live TV programming with your smartphone is definitely the new wave. We've done something similar with the players guide where you can live tweet team sports events using Twitter as the messenger get service. Search "players guide" here in product hunt.

Great product @sippey! I would be curious to know if you could have a thread of things happening within a very small proximity of me (same restaurant, same building, etc, within feet instead of miles). That way people can share recommendations, find each other, etc.

@ellenjdasilva Hey Ellen! Thanks for checking it out. Love that idea about proximity. The "neighborhood Talkshow."
