Recently, we announced a new partnership with Transport for NSW on a new, Australian-first service to automatically alert customers on Twitter about delays or disruptions while travelling on the suburban and intercity train network in NSW. Today, we’re excited to announce that this service is now live.
Throughout its existence Twitter has been a source of quick gratification – offering bite-size chunks of information on any topic, as quickly as you can type in a search query. Now, with a local pilot in collaboration with Twitter Australia, we’re turning our @HERE Twitter account into a smart route planner that can offer directions to your destination or suggest a nearby restaurant, ATM, petrol station, or other point of interest.
Twitter is already used by thousands of commuters every day. Today, we’re announcing a new partnership with Transport for NSW to pilot a new, Australian-first service that will automatically alert customers about delays or disruptions while travelling on the suburban and intercity train network in NSW.
The public pilot launching in December is the latest in a series of services and features that make Twitter more useful for businesses and their customers.
