Between Twitter and It’s Alternative

Twitterd

I now need Twitter more than Twitter needs me. –TC.

When I re-themed NH, I needed a micro-blogging tool. I wanted to fill the small gaps between our virtual world. Much to my despair, Twitter is failing me a few times already. (You can follow me on Twitter!)

What can I do with Twitter? Read here. You’ll need it more than you need Facebook or MySpace!

microblogging is more than that. Im waiting for Jaiku. It looks awesome!

i found a new one, twixtr, can upload photo from mobile, the rest more or less same with twitter. any idea which micro-blogging service was the pioneer? i tried tumblr before, then in Malaysia we have this Pacme, currently for maxis/hotlink users only.

micro-blogging is addictive!!!! :up:

ps: i just stick to those which most of my friends are using hehe….

diamยฒ je? Well a few others have spoken, so I want to leave my mark too LOL

I read about Jaiku somewhere sometime ago… didn’t know about the rest though … I might give them a try, but like bongkersz said .. I’ll use those that I can communicate with my friends with ๐Ÿ˜›

melbie’s last blog post..Help! Iโ€™m A Worrywart!

Woah I feel so outdated! Out of the so many competing services you’ve listed, I’ve only heard of tumblr ๐Ÿ™„ emotionr sounds very cute because they actually allow you to have decimals in your mood rating – now that’s really something ๐Ÿ™‚

I heard that Twitter was down yesterday afternoon for 2 hours for servicing. I guess when a Web2.0 service gets too huge, the maintenance time and frequency increases. Ah, the power of crowds. Anyway Twitter limits the frequency of tweets when there’s a major event – I’ve heard of this somewhere – to reduce burden on their servers.

teddY’s last blog post..Idโ€™s Awesome New Layout!

Whoa. I never knew there are alternatives for twitter. I’ve only heard twitter before and none of the above. For the time being, I think I shall stick to twitter. โ“

But one thing I hate about twitter is I couldn’t activate my mobile phone. Could it be because I’m using an Indonesian phone number? WTH. I feel discriminated. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Mira’s last blog post..Iโ€™m bored.
