Stephen Fry To Pimp Pushnote To His 2M+ Followers – Will It Work?
In what we’re sure will amount to a social media orgy, noted author, comedian and British cultural icon Stephen Fry is announcing the formal launch of Pushnote on Twitter at 2pm today (he’s running late). Fry, who became an investor in the UK startup in June of last year, has over 2 million followers on the microblogging service.
Pushnote, which was soft-launched the same month (see TCEU coverage), consists of a browser add-on that enables users to leave comments on any site they visit. It’s not dissimilar in concept to Google Sidewiki, for example, and many others that have tried and failed, although Pushnote is intended to have greater consumer appeal.
