Using Twitter for beta testing Web sites

Using Twitter for beta testing Web sites

The other day I posted this message to Twitter about the launch of the new TPC.com home page. It’s a major site for us, even though we only redesigned the home page. The secondary pages were from the TOUR’s previous marriage.

I received a few well deserved kudos but more importantly one of my fellow designers pointed out a major issue with broken links involving flash navigation. (I know, who still does that?)

Fortunately we were able to fix the problem before the Big Boss found out. I think I’ll be using Twitter from now on prior to launching. It’s like a dozen of more fresh eyes!
