I quite like the concept and it seems to out do Twitter in nearly every way.
The only problem is there are no banner ads. No forms of advertising what so ever. Sure in the short term that’s great for me and you but how are they going to pay their costs? This becomes particularly important with their exponentially growing traffic.
Like many social networks, they are going to struggle to monetise the site. And by introducing advertising now, you risk alienating your community.
Where does this leave them in the long term?
