Yappd Didn't Last Long. DeadPool.

When Twitter-clone Yappd launched two months ago, we wrote “Here’s a me-too service that won’t last long” and “yet another hopeful young gun enters the space with little to differentiate itself except the addition of a photo to your status messages.” We may not always be right, but this time it was sort of obvious – the world doesn’t need yet another me-too service like Twitter.

Today Yappd announced that it was being acquired and the service will be shut down on November 5. Welcome to the TechCrunch Deadpool, Yappd. We hardly knew you.

That leaves Twitter, Pownce and the recently acquired (by Google) Jaiku left in the ring.
