I have heard others say that Seesmic, the video twitter site, will not make it because they will be pushed aside once Twitter decides to do video. I disagree with this because Twitter is not looking to do video and there is an audience who wants the functionality of a video twitter. This is particularly appealing to video bloggers, bloggers and life casters. They have potential to step it up and take the opportunity because Twitter is not interested. Though they have a ways to go they are going in the right direction and making the right marketing moves.
Seesmic is a little buggy. A few times I have tried to record video and it either didn’t record or cut off my last sentence. I noticed on some other videos the end of their sentence was cut off in their twitters. The You Tube automatic upload feature doesn’t seem to be working at this time, but you may send all seesmic posts right to your twitter by entering your Twitter account information on Seesmic.
Seesmic could really make it because they have a good marketing and PR strategy that I find impressive on many levels. First their modesty and humbleness over their brilliant idea wins the press over, second their closed alpha stage has built a tighter community with community leaders and their original content promotes bloggers and Seesmic outside of the closed alpha site making others beg for invites. I have only five invites left and will be happy to send you one. Tell me what you like or don’t like about it in the comments below.
Watch this video Vinvin made (quite the funny guy from what I have seen) with Loic and tell me if you think it is entertaining. Personally I like how the entire video is narrated by their twitters. These guys are not only smart and funny, but they are creative too.
