Is Gawkk “Twitter for Videos”?

We all know Twitter, right? Twitter is a micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Just to make sure you know 🙂 Oh, by the way, you can also follow me on Twitter via http://twitter.com/bertverdonck if you like.

Twitter has its limitations, because it’s text only. Gawkk seems to become the  “Twitter for Videos”. It was launched by Gary Culliss and Thomas Mango.

www.gawkk.comWhat is it? Gawkk.com is like a “Twitter for videos” where you can discover, share and discuss videos from around the web with your friends and followers by answering one simple question: What are you watching?

To start a conversation, Gawkk incorporates video from thousands of media sources across the Internet, but you also can add a video from any website and then share and discuss it with your friends and followers on Gawkk.  By combining a powerful video discovery engine with a social messaging platform, Gawkk provides a simple and effective resource for finding and discussing the most interesting videos from around the web.

So, Gawkk seems like the video shortcut you’ve been waiting for 🙂 Gone are the days of scrolling, searching videos on all those platforms like YouTube.

I hope you like it too and let me know what you are watching, ok? 🙂

Have fun, always,

    Bert: You say Twitter has its limitations, because it’s text only. I don’t think that’s the case at all. Include one simple, short URL and one click later you can be anywhere else: a website, someone’s blog, a YouTube clip or looking at a PowerPoint presentation on SlideShare. Too many people see Twitter as a micro-blogging social media service. To me, that’s how it began, but it’s now evolved into something hugely more valuable: a platform to link to anything you want, a news delivery service, a search engine and a great way of keeping informed about what’s going on without having to seek it out. And of course, if you just want to tell people what you’re doing, you can do that too.
