Get real time UK traffic updates from the only traffic app to provide instant push notifications the moment traffic develops.
Twitraffic uses the Twitter firehose to see traffic created in real-time, ensuring you're constantly in the know when it comes to planning your journey.
• What makes this different from other traffic apps? •
As it's often real people who are first to spot traffic developing, Twitter can be the first data source for disgruntled drivers and their passengers, who are first on the scene before official agencies or the police. Taking data from real individuals means you're the first to know of any traffic developing along major UK roads.
• Fully featured UK traffic app •
Twitraffic combines the best features of other traffic apps available by providing:
◦ Journey planner with route directions and traffic alerts.
◦ A simple traffic summary detailing current traffic.
◦ Lookup any recent tweets on a road of interest.
◦ A map detailing current traffic.
◦ Push notifications for roads you subscribe to. This ensures you're alerted to traffic the moment it develops.
• How does it work? •
Twitraffic extensively mines Twitter for tweets relating to UK road traffic, using a powerful algorithm to judge severity of an incident or set of roadworks.
Maybe you're thinking, 'That doesn't sound very accurate?' You would be surprised! The algorithm learns what's junk and often compares its results against the UK Highways Agency to ensure the data you see is valid and reliable.
