Twitter CEO Evan Williams @ SXSW

This is old news, but Evan Williams announced @anywhere – a new Twitter service – at SXSW keynote on Monday. From what the KXAN reporter said it sounds like people weren’t thrilled with what Williams had to say. We all knew about @anywhere before today and an announcement at SXSW is like retelling a news story a day later.

Williams debuted Twitter’s new @anywhere service, which boasts better user integration with Twitter on 13 various Web sites like The New York Times and Yahoo.

What the reporter failed to note was the mob-style backchannel SXSW has become know for. From Gawker.com it sounds like people were more than disappointed, they were ready to throw things.
