ChirpChatter originally started out as being a feature of ChirpTracker, but after some discussion with our team and gathering feedback from birders, we decided to build a full fledged (pun intended) app out of it, thus ChirpChatter.com was born. There are many microblogging sites out there, the most famous of course being Twitter. We (as well as many other birders) recognized that this format for sharing information could be excellent for birders to report sightings and connect the birding community. Many birders are already starting to report their sightings on Twitter, however Twitter is quite generalized and not targeted to a specific niche. This is where ChirpChatter comes in. We have basically created a “Twitter for birders”. We have taken the great parts about Twitter and molded our own “birder” version by adding valuable features to make ChirpChatter work for you, the birder and user.
We’re planning on releasing a private beta to a select few very shortly to help give us a first impression on how you, the user is going to react to it. We have some users in mind to ask to help test, but if you just can’t wait to get your hands on ChirpChatter, contact us and we’ll see what we can do. We’re not going to spill the beans on all of our shiny features… yet, but we might tell a few individuals some secrets!
Oh… and yes, we ARE going to give you Twitter support . This means that you don’t have to leave all your Twittering friends behind! We have plans to link your ChirpChatter account with your Facebook account too if you want! (You will have the option to turn on/off these settings as you like!)
If you have any thoughts, suggestions, or just want to say hi, we would love to hear from you (Especially if you are a birder)! You can contact us or post in the comments. Any feedback you can give us will make a better experience for everyone.
