The free social app TWISPER has arrived in the UK just in time for Brits to spend lockdown 2.0 planning their eagerly anticipated 2021 holidays and nights out after almost a year of restrictions.
The app allows users to share and discover personal and positive-only recommendations of restaurants, hotels and bars around the world from a community of friends and trusted partners through digital word of mouth. TWISPER enables users to cut out negativity and find authentic recommendations of places to eat, drink and sleep around the world – whether that’s in their local neighbourhood or their next holiday destination.
A Nielsen study found that 83% of consumers trust recommendations from people they know, and TWISPER aims to capitalise on this – helping people to find hidden gems around the world based on positive reviews from a trusted and vetted community.
TWISPER is growing its presence across the world having now reached the iconic milestone of over 1.4 million downloads in more than 150 countries in less than a year. After recently launching in the UK, its user community is now rapidly growing here.
TWISPER’s commitment to having a platform free from negative comments, fake reviews and unfair ratings as well as its promise to protect its users’ data means that travellers can set up their profiles, invite their friends to join them, benefit from positive recommendations from the people they know and a worldwide community of foodies and travellers and, ultimately, plan their next big trip with peace of mind. TWISPER is calling for change in a polluted and noisy online world.
TWISPER includes a host of features that make trip planning easy. Users can take recommendations from expert partners such as easyJet Traveller, National Geographic Traveller UK, Time Out London and Wanderlust, save places they wish to try for later, find inspiration on their feed which has a convenient layout akin to other social media apps, and make plans using the chat feature.
TWISPER refuses to use data for revenue purposes, which makes it a unique and disruptive business model, unlike major online recommendation platforms and GAFA’s tech giants, who make huge profits by selling user data.
This virtuous circle is supported by a growing number of partners that have joined this positive revolution, including award-winning brand ambassadors within the hospitality sector like Michelin star winning chef Tom Aikens and award-winning bartender Erik Lorincz.
