UK Traffic Tweets - Twitraffic (Lite)
Get real time UK traffic updates straight from Twitter. Twitraffic uses the popular social media tool to see traffic created in real-time, ensuring you're constantly in the know when it comes to planning your journey.
This is the lite version of Twitraffic, which does not contain instant push notifications. If you want this feature, please consider the pro version of the app:
What makes this different from other traffic apps?
As it's often real people who are first to spot traffic developing, Twitter can be the first data source for disgruntled drivers and their passengers, who are first on the scene before official agencies or the police. Taking data from real individuals means you're the first to know of any traffic developing along major UK roads.
How does it work?
Twitraffic extensively mines Twitter for tweets relating to UK road traffic, using a powerful algorithm to judge severity of an incident or set of roadworks.
Maybe you're thinking, "That doesn't sound very accurate?" You would be surprised! The algorithm learns what's junk and often compares its results against the UK Highways Agency to ensure the data you see is valid and reliable.
Is it just a gimmick?
No! A significant amount of time has been spent optimising the algorithm to produce highly accurate results. I truly believe this is the first source in discovering developing UK road traffic. Moreover, Twitraffic combines the best features of other traffic apps available by providing:
- A simple interface.
- Filters for incidents & roadworks.
- A simple traffic summary detailing current traffic.
- Lookup any recent tweets on a road of interest.
Critical bug fix for those using 2.0.1, where the app would crash on start-up.
