Backdraft is an iPad app that enables you to write tweets in advance, and then release them while you are giving a presentation. You can engage the backchannel, while presenting from the front channel. Think of Backdraft like a remote control for Twitter – or a "tweemote."

Using Backdraft you can collect pre-authored tweets for your presentation around a hashtag. You can also use more than one hashtag, or mention (@username), depending on the event.

Within each hashtag, you can can write as many tweets as needed. These tweets can contain URLs that will automatically be shortened, or photos that will be automatically uploaded. Using Backdraft you can assign tweets different colors to make them easier to see while you are speaking. Once you have created a new tweet, it can be edited by swiping your finger over the tweet and tapping the edit button.

When you are ready to present, just tap the tweet and send. Backdraft will do everything else.

There are many ways to use Backdraft:
-Share links that are on your presentation slides.
-Provide links to additional information.
-Answer popular questions.
-Pose questions to your audience in the backchannel.
-Underscore important points.
