When planning an event, aside from all the fun stuff like the programme, the décor and the like, the bottom line is getting people to turn up; and no-one's going to make an appearance if they don't even know it exists. So marketing the event is key, and that's where evvnt comes in. It's an online event marketing service that focuses on getting the word out there by broadcasting and publishing a user's event to multiple event listing sites. The evvnt API makes this functionality available to be integrated with other sites and applications.
When Twitter announced it's new Twitter API changes it left many the disgruntled third party app developer who had built tools and services on top of the API. Where many have been forced to simply work around these changes regardless of the damage caused, others will be forced to abruptly shut down. Unfortunately, the latter is true for Twimbow.
