What’s Tweeting Palo Alto?

February 25th, 2010 by Altaire Townhomes

We are always on the hunt for an insiders scoop on upcoming art events, restaurant recommendations, happy hour deals and fun things to do in Palo Alto. More than ever, consumers are communicating in real-time via smart phones linked to Twitter about their first-hand experiences at local lunch spots, art galleries and entertainment venues by posting reviews on Yelp and check-ins with feedback on Foursquare or Gowalla. These local tweets can provide insight, feedback and even recommendations on a variety of topics.

Interested in what people are tweeting about near Altaire?

Take a look at our new, custom umapper map.  You can zoom in and out (top left) and recent tweets will load automatically in the new map.

Search keywords in twitter by using the search tab in the bottom right of the map.
Try typing keywords like SVRE, Altaire or real estate to see what locals are saying about the housing market. An interesting trend is to see tech-savvy real estate agents and brokers use their smart phones to check-in to each open house on Broker Tour days and provide feedback via Twitter or leave feedback on those communities listed on geo-tagging sites like Foursquare and Gowalla. A great real-time client service!

Recently, SF Beer week was on twitter and it was fun watching nearby tweets recommend different ales and brews or pairings and tasting locations. Interested in art, music or wine? Try those keywords…you may hear about something new in the neighborhood!

You can even view the map and tweets in full screen mode by clicking on the full screen tab (top right).
