BUT PLENTY OF EREADER USERS ARE TALKING ABOUT THEIR GADGETS ON TWITTER!The value of monitoring Twitter? Gaining a consumer perspective!!!
One of the challenges the company faces is being able to gather accurate user feedback about their successful displays. Since consumers do not interact directly with the company, one of the best ways for them to find valuable feedback comes by monitoring news and social media.
E Ink Improves eReader Displays by Listening
USE TWITTER TO:Gather valuable feedback from end usersLearn the trade-offs that end users are willing to make (battery life, glare, resolution, etc.)Determine the direction of product developmentsMake products that end users love!
Extremely helpful recently in settling a debate between E Ink engineers when discussing the merits of introducing a new technology that would help speed up page turning when reading a book on an eReader.
E Ink: The issue was that this technology requires more power to run. However, from monitoring Twitter E Ink found that users particularly appreciate the low power consumption of devices. E Ink got a consumer perspective and an idea of the trade-off users might be willing to live with compared with the viewpoint of their engineers.
