Texting in public

Sounds voyeuristic right? Well it is. Welcome to the new age of chat.

Have you noticed how popular it is for people to post screenshots of private texts so friends (or fans, in the case of celebrities) can share in the experience?

Michael Sippey former vice president of product development at Twitter, recognised the opportunity and has launched Talkshow, a free social media network that allows you to text in public.

The app allows a ‘host’ and ‘co-host’ to have a text conversation in front of an audience. Imagine all the uses…watching live political debates, getting celebrity gossip from the horse’s mouth or will it be picked up by brand evangelists?
