Live video can be broadcast from the user's cell phone or any computer for streaming to the user's Twitpump account. With Twitpump capability, all of this multimedia content becomes immediately accessible to family, friends, clients, and customers worldwide.
Twitpump's user accounts are very convenient for maintaining blogs that chronologically express a user's sharing of their life experiences with others. By expanding from limited to a full multimedia capability, Twitpump is unique in its ability to enhance the individual's blogs in comparison to competitive websites.

Twitpump and Mobile Devices
A cell phone can be used to transmit Twitpump and multimedia attachments, with the only limits being the capability of the cell phone itself.
A basic cell phone with a camera can send text messages with attached video clips or pictures. On the other extreme, smart phones those using Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian, as well as iPhone, can take full advantage of all of Twitpump's multimedia capabilities, including live video broadcast and managing views and posts.
Twitpump technology includes a patented, proprietary form of video transmission capability that is unsurpassed in its ability to maintain connections within the constantly fluctuating bandwidths that represent the reality within cell phone communications. When other technologies disconnect when transmitting in the unstable cellular environment, Twitpump will remain solid.
In today's world where minutes are critical to users in experiencing life, only Twitpump can allow a user to, with a single click of the button, transmit a live streaming video of an important event to users' friends or customers. Concurrent with the start of the live broadcast, Twitpump automatically notifies your followers that you are now streaming live.
Of course, any mobile device with access to the internet can connect the user to their Twitpump page so that they may read and view all the multimedia messaging wherever they are.
Twitpump and Live Broadcast of Video
The same technology used by major global news networks and professional journalists to transmit live video, even in locations with an unstable cellular signal, is offered to everyone through Twitpump.
Live streaming video can be broadcast from any smart phone running the Twitpump application. Any PC or Mac can also stream live video in any wired or wireless environment.
When a user starts broadcasting a live video stream, a message is sent to all followers/friends to make them aware of the stream. The message includes a link that allows them to immediately start viewing the broadcast.
Twitpump's professional video technology was designed so that if physical safety necessitated that the reporter discontinue a feed, or communications signal was dropped by the carrier, the reporter could still continue to record the story, with Twitpump technology saving the data and transmitting it as soon as the feed is reestablished, leaving no break in the story. Twitpump offers all users this same professional capability
Twitpump's technology operates in environments where many phones can't even maintain reception. The capabilities that make Twitpump technology the choice for professional journalists also makes it the most attractive technology for citizen journalists, those individuals who choose to report newsworthy events outside the venue of classic media.
Email as a Blogging Medium Using Twitpump
Many users exclusively use e-mail as their text based communications medium. These users have previously been excluded from direct connections with favorite social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Twitpump changes all that.
Each Twitpump user receives a private mailbox on the Twitpump server. The user can send text messages and attachments to this private mailbox just as they would send any email, and the text and multimedia will automatically be updated on their Twitpump, Twitter and Facebook accounts in real time (if so desired.)
Integration with Popular Social Networks like Twitter and Facebook
The Twitpump app provides transparent integration of user messages with popular social networks Twitter and Facebook. If the user already has an account one of these sites, they can easily sign-into Twitpump. To use all of the Twitpump capability, they must register with Twitpump, which takes only a few seconds.
With a single click, users may opt-in to having all Twitpump messages update their Twitter and/or Facebook accounts automatically, in real time.
Twitter and Facebook messages through Twitpump are transmitted along with "short links" to attached pictures and video clips. These short links are easy to remember and can be easily inserted by users into other blog sites.
Geo-Location and Twitpump
Users of Twitpump have the option of including an automatically embedded geo-location based on GPS data related to their current location or by the IP internet address of the nearest connecting server. Exact location can be identified by the user through an interactive map.
Users can sort messages by geo-location, whether it be a specific city, state or country. This gives the user an opportunity to get immediate information from their social network on restaurant, events, vacation activities, and other useful data specific to the area where they are traveling.
