It’s here! Mark this date – February 23rd, 2009.
This is the day when a new Finnish service called Twitbear went to closed beta.
Twitbear is a project of three social media entrepreneurs – @anttiakonniemi @kaimaan, @heleneauramo – that’s what they are called in Twitter.
Twitbear looks and feels just like Twitter, but it allows users to do something that serious tweeters have been missing for a long time – comment on threads. This feature will bring on the active discussion known from services such as Jaiku, which unfortunately has been faded by Google.
The first hours of Twitbear has been booming. Really looking forward to see how fast this will fly.
Should interview them? Sure, why not. I’ll grab my vidset and find them.
