SideTaker.com Uses Twitter To Give TweeVice
SideTaker.com, a website designed to handle the resolution of arguments between two people anonymously, has added the ability for giving advice – dubbed TweeVice - using the popular service Twitter.
People add both sides of an argument on SideTaker.com. The initiator adds their side and then, via email, invites the person they’re fighting with to the argument to add their side. Once both sides are added, the argument goes live for the public to give advice and vote on which side they believe to be right and wrong. If the second side doesn’t or wouldn’t be believed to accept the invitation, sides can be added to the site in the form of a question which go live immediately after moderation.
The purpose of TweeVice is to facilitate the process of lending advice to SideTaker arguments and questions for Twitter users. Twitter users simply authenticate the SideTaker Twitter application and post their TweeVice freely either from SideTaker itself or directly on Twitter. Following @sidetaker on Twitter also allows users to see each new argument and question posted providing the ability to give immediate advice.
Because of its anonymous posting nature, it’s easier for SideTaker users to open up and tell in more detail their problems than to tell someone they know – especially if the argument involves sordid details. SideTaker is best for advice on problems people have a hard time telling others. Users leaving advice are also anonymous with the exception of TweeVice users, where every piece of TweeVice they leave links back to their Twitter profile.
To turn people onto the service, sponsored gift cards will be given away to people following @sidetaker and providing TweeVice on SideTaker.
