Love this campaign site SVT – a Swedish TV iPhone app.
Everything on a single page – campaign idea, open letter to steve job, video product demo, selection of screenshots, pre-filled twitter message and feed, twingly and facebook feeds, live video streaming from Apple HQ (I’m assuming it’s spoofed), click “Ya” to announce approval if you’re Steve Jobs, “Ya” ticker and Youtube webcam “Ya” uploads.
Sounds like a lot but it works really well for this.
The kicker is that it turns out that the approval campaign is a PR stunt – the app was only submitted the day before it all broke. Not many people will know that. But Apple will.
Wonder if SVT might find themselves having a few ‘approval difficulties’ for this one.
Update: Apple has just released the following statement:
The SVT app was just submitted for App Store approval today. We look forward to reviewing it as part of the normal review process in hopes that it may soon join the more than 100,000 apps already on the App Store.”
The project kicks-off on the 22nd December and finishes on the 25th Dec to match the chronology of the film. It will be performed in realtime using Central Standard Time – as that’s the timezone in Illinois. 🙂

Looking forward to seeing how it works out!

Now and again you read something that perfectly sums up the jumble of thoughts in your head.
I think these 2 are spot on.
I’ve cracked it! do stuff people like! then people will like you more and maybe buy some of your stuff. if it’s good stuff.
Spend money on doing something interesting. Then make YouTube film about it rather than TV ad.
Anyone got any others?

Meet Chris Kahle, who Tweeted his way into Crispin.
So there you have it. Blogs and twitter picked it up, over 80 tweets were sent, and he got the cut through.
It’s not something that anyone can do again. But he get their attention and seems to have the skills to back it all up.

Pockets lets you leave a private voicemail for anyone on Twitter and they’ll be notified via @reply.
Early days, but looks promising.
Another one of those cool / innovative apps growing around the Twitter ecosystem.

Loving this from Ben Stiller.
Hey, this is my first “post”
Buzzwords thrown about willy-nilly with a great comedy delivery.
Ben Stiller asks Ryan Seacrest to “Tweet” about him
Looks like he’s planning to create content just for the web.
What a funny wee man.
There’s more funny shit going on at his Facebook and Twitter.
I like this a lot. Every day people are called on to accomplish a specific mission via Twitter.
People submit themselves completing that mission and the results are shown for all to see on http://tweaktoday.com/
New missions are also submitted and voted on by the users.
And there’s a diary of previous missions
Here’s some examples:
Record video of your commute. Compress to 30 seconds.
Take a picture of the coolest building near your work.
Share a photo of the most embarrassing DVD you own.
Simple idea, really well executed.
