About this Blog:
This is the Offical Spitter Blog, where you can get an insider’s view of Spitter, learn about new features, and get to know people within the company.
“Spitter helps you connect with sports fans and stay in touch with news about your favorite teams.”
We started Spitter because as sports fans we found that must-read news and online discussions are scattered across thousands of news sites, blogs and social media sites. That’s too many web sites for anyone to go out and find.
Our Spitterbot technology collects news headlines and fan discussions from around the web and presents them in a simple, quick-read page, organized by team.
We are all about delivering the current stream on your favorite team, whether it’s news or community, letting you keep pace as events happen.
Connect with friends and fans about your favorite teams. Snack on the latest rumors, rants and raves.
Spitter, Inc. was founded by online sports media veterans David Eckoff and Peter Gruman. They were part of the core team at Rivals.com (later acquired by Yahoo), and have led innovative online sports businesses at Scout.com (acquired by Fox Interactive Media), RealNetworks and Turner Broadcasting.
The company is early stage, with private Alpha concluded August 2009, and an open Beta currently under way.
