By RTE News staff article In an effort to combat the social media crash that hit Ireland in January, RTÉ has developed a tool to help users navigate the world of the social network.
The app, called TwitterBuddy, lets users find each other, share their tweets, and check if a specific tweet is a retweet.
It’s a great solution for users who may be overwhelmed by the many different ways that social media can impact their daily lives.
TwitterBuddys Twitter client is available on iOS and Android, with more features coming to the app in the future.
“We are constantly working to improve our products and service to make it as seamless and seamless as possible for our users to get to the content they want,” says RTE’s Senior Content Marketing Manager, Richard Mackey.
RTÉ launched its TwitterBuddle app in January 2016.
“Twitter is the biggest social media platform out there, but we need a good app to stay ahead of the curve,” says Richard.
The team at RTÉ have been working to develop a product that makes it easy for users to use Twitter without breaking the bank.
It is one of the most powerful social media tools available.
In a recent video released on YouTube, Richard explains how the app works.
“Users will be able to tweet, reply to each other and engage in conversations without having to worry about managing their account, sharing their password, or logging in to a different device,” he said.
RTTE has launched the app and will be rolling it out to the RTÉ apps, RTOS and RTÉ Kids in the coming weeks.
“In this particular case, we were able to use our mobile device for this very purpose and get the app working on all platforms that are supported by Twitter,” says Mr Mackey, “But we need to be sure that users don’t fall through the cracks.”
The app can be downloaded from the RTE app store, as well as the RTOS Appstore and the RTKids Appstore.
“RTÉ has a long history of supporting the mobile internet.
That is why we have the RTiOS app, and we’ve also been working closely with RTÉ on the RTApps app, which will enable users to stream RTÉ content on their mobile devices,” says Ms Elisha.
