Two More Microblogging Sites: Identi.ca and Kwippy
Posted on July 20, 2008The number of microblogging worlds to visit continues to climb. You can add them to growing number existing microblogging tools like Twitter, FriendFeed, Plurk, Jaiku and Pownce. Twitter - the most popular of these types of tools - has been functioning better lately but this improvement has come at the expense of the Twitter API. The latest microblogging entries are Identi.ca and Kwippy.
Identi.ca is a recently launched microblogging service that has a similar feel to Twitter. It is unique in that it uses the Open Microblogging specification. Identi.ca recently added a response tab and they are planning many more features.
Kwippy is a microblogging service with a unique look that allows updating via GTalk and Yahoo messenger. Kwippy groups comments together in threads which makes them easier to follow than on Twitter. Kwippy also allows entries that are longer than 140 characters. Following is easy on Kwippy and can be done with a single click.
Both of these new microblogging sites can be updated through ping.fm.
