Online betting company Bet Smart Media has released a Twitter game chat widget that will allow players to see real time tweets about a specific game they are following.
The widget is powered by SportsWidgets.com and gives punters the ability to participate in the conversation about the event while staying in the Sports Interaction website. The widget is set to deliver a social experience to users that was once not readily available in all situations.
Bet Smart Media President Jesse Learmonth said, “We’re excited to be working with Sports Interaction. It is a respected brand that has earned peoples’ trust since 1997. Sports Interaction ‘gets’ the impact of social media, and furthers its reputation as an industry innovator with an interactive Twitter application integrated right into the sportsbook.
“We make it easy for sportsbooks to give customers a platform to voice their opinion on the game. Or for those customers that just want to see what everyone else is saying, they can quickly scan the game chat stream.”
