PPTwi is a PowerPoint add-in that enables slideshows with submitting scheduled tweets as you proceed slides.
You can edit scheduled tweets by simply typing text in "note" sections for each slide.

When is it useful?

You know, these days the audiences of major conferences or meetings tend to communicate with each other using twitter.
And video streaming services such as Ustream have enabled people to watch presentations outside the presentation rooms.
In such situations, presenters are facing a difficulty to hold initiative of communication during their presentations.
PPTwi helps presenters by allowing them to commit on the twitter channel during a presentation.
It is typically useful in the following scenarios: 
  • Supplement: Besides slides, you can give the audience supplemental information about your presentation. It helps presenters to simplify each slides while keeping the quality of information.
  • Broadcasting: You can give the twitter audience the complete information about your presentation by tweeting summaries of every slide. It will be useful for Ustream watchers.
  • Off-the-record: You can give the audience "off-the-record" remarks that you can not officially contain in your slides.
  • Self FAQ: You can simulate FAQ and answers by yourself.
