Road Trip + Twitter = Roadtwip
Twitter has inspired everything. It's changed the way people communicate. It's become a marketing platform. It's become a direct marketing channel. It's lent credence to the notion "conversations" can actually occur between a brand and a person. And...it's given us Oprah whether we like it or not. So why not a road trip? Or, rather, a Roadtwip.
Oh yes. Much like iPhone's "there's an app for that," there's an app for anything and everything you want to do with Twitter. Why not a road trip app? OK so Roadtwip isn't actually an app, rather a physical road trip during which three people hop in a car and, for two weeks, traverse the country "seeking the emerging future for a new America."
Apart from the comical combination of tech buzz word overload and political puffery, this just might be an adventure worth watching. Why? Because...wait for it...there's a "Social Catalyst" along for the ride! Yes, LA-based Kurt Deradics of FreedomSpeaks will be on hand as will Tech scene photographer and Christian music lyrics site owner (now there's an interesting combination) Jonathan Dingman.
Also along for the ride is Jolie O'Dell, an up and coming ReadWriteWeb tech journalist and video blogger who is obsessed (obsessed, I tell you!) with all things geekishly social and tech-related. And yes, she is ReadWrite...Red.
We've seen these three in action. While they are seeking some sponsorship for this Roadtwip, we're sure, sponsor or no sponsor, these three will give us a great ride and uncover some hidden geektastic gems along the way.
