Eventbrite Improves Event Sharing With Twitter's New Tweet Button
As a Launch Partner, New Sharing Tool Allows Eventbrite Users to Share Events, Shorten Links, and Tweet Directly From Event Page
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 12, 2010) - Eventbrite, the fastest growing social commerce company, today announced the integration of Twitter's New Tweet Button as an essential way for event organizers and attendees to share and spread their Eventbrite experiences. Eventbrite joins a select group of other socially driven companies as a launch partner with Twitter for the new feature.
The Tweet Button enables Eventbrite users and organizers to compose, shorten, and tweet Eventbrite events to their Twitter profiles directly from the event page itself, ensuring that the attendee or organizer doesn't have to leave their Eventbrite page in order to share the event with their followers. With over 25 percent of total tweets containing links, the Tweet Button offers a convenient way for Eventbrite users to publish those links without having to visit other sites to do so.
"Eventbrite is about sharing the live experience, whether it's a yoga workshop, cooking class, music festival, tech conference… you name it. As a launch partner for the Tweet Button, Eventbrite is making it faster and simpler for our event organizers and attendees to share their love for a live event with their social graph," said Kevin Hartz, CEO and Co-Founder of Eventbrite.
Eventbrite powers live experiences for all interests, all over the world, by offering event organizers an easy-to-use, elegant, and simple way to manage, promote and sell out their events. The platform has seen skyrocketing adoption and ticket sales since deeply integrating with social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
