TwitVid renamed Telly to show off video-discovery focus
The company, which previously let customers share videos via Twitter, is now a social video-discovery site, and has changed its name to reflect that.
TwitVid, a service that was once considered the "TwitPic of video," has been rebranded as Telly.
The company announced the switch on its Twitter feed today, saying that it was "extremely excited to introduce you to our new name and experience." Under the new name, Telly will continue to allow users to collect and share videos with friends.
TwitVid made a name for itself by allowing users to share videos over Twitter. However, the company changed things up late last year by becoming a discovery site for users to find videos uploaded via TwitVid, as well as those on other video sites, like YouTube. The move was a not-so subtle attempt to limit the company's reliance upon Twitter and chart its own path.
. The funds were used to help the company grow, and ostensibly help it transition to its new focus.
