See More d the "What Twitter Can Be" article from Chris Sacca, and the “live” section of it resonated a lot with me. I thought “Damn, how I wish something like that existed”, then I realized I could just make it.
Another inspiration came from the day after twitter reactions posts. Pick any big Game of Thrones death and you can bet that Buzzfeed and many other news outlets will create a list with the best twitter reactions - but not UpWorthy. What if you could see those tweets during the show/game, live? That’s what we are trying to do.
The first coverage I made, with my first alpha tester (my wife), was amazing. We had so much fun talking about the tweets! Every now and then I would laugh out loud, she would ask me what was going on and then a tweet would pop on her screen and she would start laughing as well - it was MasterChef Brazil, that has a lot of meme potential. That enjoyment is the feeling we want our users to have when they are following our live streams, and it is something we have achieved with some of our beta testers so far.
Hope you enjoy our live streams as much as we enjoy selecting those tweets!
