Just what the world needs: A Twitter Clone

April 7, 2007

jaikuScoble reports the Leo Laporte has switched to Jaiku, a Twitter clone. Already I’m seeing messages there from new signups thanking both Scoble + Laporte. Does the world need another Twitter? I’m finding keeping up on Twitter hard enough as it is, imagine having to do it on two sites, or three, or more? And as for business models, do any of these sites have one as yet? Twitter has zero revenue…so the VC funds must be burning at Web 1.0 rates…it starts to give rise to the bubble argument in a way. Time will tell I guess.

One response to Just what the world needs: A Twitter Clone

  1. FWIW, I think Jaiku was around first, before Twitter. I had an account there long before I had a twitter account… Hardly ever used it much because of the lack of a client for my phone.
