SPNbabble – A Twitter Clone for Webmasters

I’ve been fascinated by Twitter for months although for the life of me I don’t know why. The idea of micro-blogging – limiting posts to 140 characters or less – seems ludicrous on the surface and yet has a certain appeal. Maybe it’s because everyone is busy these days and less is more. Or, maybe I prefer concise communications to long-winded ones. Or, it could be that I believe if I play with Twitter long enough some truly original use for it will manifest itself to justify the time I’ve spent on it.

Anyway I thought launching a Twitter clone for webmasters and site owners might be interesting and possibly even useful for those of you who like the Twitter concept but would like to see a bit more focus in message posts. SPNbabble is the end result – a Twitter clone for webmasters and site owners of every stripe. Coming soon to SiteProNews.com. Watch for it.

    As I understand above – is now a pre-announcement of something that MAY BE announced later on …..
    that was a real WASTE of my time to read above. I expected facts and examples and download data/SW!
