Did you ever notice that almost every tweet features a screenshot? While tweeting screenshots seems cool and credible, the process of creating a multimedia post with a screen capture is rather painful. Every user goes through pressing the camera button, saving the file, digging it up among a myriad of other weirdly-named files, embedding it into the post, editing it, and finally posting (maybe). With TweetShot, sharing your screenshots happens in an instant.
What it does
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of completing the initial version of the project on time and learning how to use a lot of new Chrome and web development tools. Since the browser and front-end tools are changing constantly, it was a great experience to learn about many new developments in the field and learn how to use some of them. We also loved making Tweeting easier for people! With TweetShot, tweeting news headlines and articles, useful stats, sports rankings, politics updates, and economic developments is so easy (!), and we're very excited to try it out ourselves.
What we learned
What's next for TweetShot
TweetShot's first version is out! And we can't wait to jump right back into working on it. In the next few months, we plan to debug the extension and make sure that all features work smoothly, work on customization and processing speed, and then add some styling to the project. We also plan to explore additional functionality that might be useful to a casual tweeter and plan to expand onto mobile platforms! We believe that TweetShot has a great future and will help thousands of people around the world to post what's on their screens in a matter of seconds!
