Twackle is just a cool name for some reason. The basis behind the service is to scour Twitter and beomome your “sportsbar in the Twittersphere“. This site was sent in from another Twitter user and follower through Facebook. A snapshot of their service is from their own website:
We find Twitter messages about your favorite sports leagues, teams, players and events, and put them all on Twackle!
A lot of it revolved around using the hashtag #twackel, as expected. So I gave it a shot for some hockey, soccer and even cricket teams for fun. If you can’t find the team or feed you want, they even have a link to let them know so they can create one. I also found out that they have a Facebook application so you can see their feeds if you choose to live in Facebook.
You log into the site with your own Twitter id and can create your own Twackle page (MyTwackle) to start tracking the feeds. The one for the St Louis Blues was quite good and comprehensive. Besides the primary sports, they had a nice list of alternates.
Thanks to EyeOnSportsMedia for sending the link this way
