ABSTRACT

Recently, as smartphones have rapidly come into wide use and various social networking services have grown, people perform a variety of interactions through the virtual and real world based on them. Usually, such services focus on easy formation of social links among users, supporting the exchange of simple messages among users on the networks. Twitter, one of such services used worldwide, supports short message service named Tweet and has over 200 million members signed up. n this paper, we propose techniques for supporting real-time group messaging based on the social network of Twitter and describe a smartphone group messaging system developed with the techniques. The system automatically forms a group that include a Twitter user and the followers of the user, supporting real-time group messaging among the group members. The developed system is composed of an XMPP protocol-based messaging server and smartphone client applications which perform real-time messaging based on the social network of Twitter. Twitter users can easily use the system utilizing Tweet messages, exchanging real-time messages with their followers within the groups instantly established on the XMPP server.
