Hindustan Times launches HTTweets
HT has launched HTTweets (in partnership with Cliqz.com), a news content aggregation website.
As per afaqs, this is not a content aggregation deal and Cliqz crawls various websites for the content (or is it rss feed aggregator?).
Interestingly, the name has nothing to do with ‘twitter’ styled formats.
Note to HT – Seems like a broken strategy – HT earlier launched talktoHT and now HTTweets – there is no integration with the existing HT site (except the look and feel). Marketing these standalone service is a huge task and is best done when they are part of the main domain (otherwise such me-too initiatives die a natural death).
