Founder Eilidh Donaldson, who has worked for skyscanner (Leading travel sector) tells about her first Startup.
What is the Product : Tweetsport – 360 real-time sports news.
What’s the value proposition / what benefits it brings to user:
Tweetsport.co.uk (United Kingdom based) is a new Twitter based sports news feed which takes users right to the heart of the action.
Our feed offers a really powerful service that will give you the news and sentiment instantly through Twitter, but follows up quickly with a recap and short opinion pieces from our headlines service.
Using verified Twitter accounts, which offer unrivalled access to the instant reactions of top players and leading pundits, Tweetsport channels the viewpoints of managers, players, press, winners, losers, before, after and even during the match across a wide range of sports.
“Tweetsport is the sports lover’s free ticket to every sporting event,” said Tweetsport founder and sports fanatic Eilidh Donaldson. “This gets them closer to the heart of the action than anything else. With Tweetsport they can really feel part of it – experiencing the tension as it builds; getting inside the players heads as they prepare for the final or deal with defeat; getting analysis and commentary by experts in their field; and breaking news which could change the result.
The website and App allow fans to get dynamic updates for all sports at once. Covering Football, Motorsport, Tennis, Golf, Rugby, Olympics, Cricket, Athletics, Cycling, Horse Racing and Swimming users can follow them all or use the filter to focus on one at a time.
How it beats the competition :
Eilidh believes Tweetsport and its free App offers something different.
“Tweetsport takes the best of Twitter’s great content and gives users an insight into the top players, commentators and teams so every sports fan can live their dream. I’ve walked the last round at Augusta with Graeme McDowell, watched the British Grand Prix with Stirling Moss and enjoyed a Wimbledon final with Brad Gilbert!
We can’t promise to take you into the changing room (some things are private!) but we can bring you the passion, excitement and drama as it unfolds. Sport is also fun and there will be plenty of banter beside the in-depth coverage and video action from the leading sports media.”
