Think you can review something in 140 characters or less?

Then LouderTweets are for you.

After a few late nights we’re now ready to let you send reviews from Twitter to LouderVoice. We’re calling them LouderTweets and they are 140 character mini-reviews you can send using Web, SMS or IM via Twitter to LouderVoice.

So far we’ve had reviews of chocolate, couscous, a conference, a lawnmower and many others. Make your Tweets Louder!

An important point is that you don’t have to be a LouderVoice member to send LouderTweets but you should join if you want to rate, bookmark and build/share useful collections of reviews and mini-reviews.

And how do you send LouderTweets as a Twitter user? It’s very simple:

  1. Add the Twitter “review” user as a friend here
  2. Wait until you get a confirmation that you have been added back as a friend
  3. Post reviews using this format on Twitter: @review RATING ITEM. REVIEW
  4. Example: @review 4 The Apprentice UK. A stonkingly good series that has thrown up plenty of surprises
  5. That format is very specific otherwise we won’t pick up the review. Rating is in the range 1-5. Full-stop/Period mandatory.
  6. Shortly afterwards that review can be found by searching on (in an open community microformat called hreview)

You can see an example here:

Tweet: LouderVoice:

As with all tweets, you can send your review tweet using whatever tool you like: web-page, Google GTalk, SMS, Tweetr etc

Let us know what you think.
