    interesting concept, i think once twitter get their act together and start to white label elements of their service, it will begin to undermine offshoots such as this – saw these guys at Le Web 08 – its a great idea – but not convinced it has legs to mainstream and really become the Ning of Twitter.

    Let’s see if a clone of a fad lasts longer than the actual company itself! My guess is that in a few years, Twitter will still result in a blank stare from the general public.
