Saturday, July 05, 2008 (shame about the name) is a Twitter clone.


The twist is that is an Open Source, CreativeCommons framework for a distributed network of federated microblogging services.


This means that Twitter must now get it's act together, fast, or it will die.
Why? has (or plans to have soon):
  • OpenID
  • SMS
  • URL shortening
  • Cross posting to Twitter and other services
  • OAuth
  • Distributed/Federated: I put a customized version of the software (called on my server, you put one on yours, we both get friends on our local copy and any other versions around the web - and everyone can communicate with each other just like we were using the same service from the same provider
  • No Failwhale
Time to wake up, Twitter.
