John Swords (aka Johnny Ming from the very informative SL podcast SecondCast) posted a very interesting comparison of Twitter/Jaiku and Myspace/Facebook — the problems the first in each pair has been experiencing recently, and how the second has handled similar circumstances in a much better way.
For those who’ve been using Twitter recently, you know that the past couple of days have been rough for avid Twitterers. (Or are we Tweeters?) Web pages not coming up. Losing the connection between Twitter and Google Talk. Etc. As I pull up the Jaiku homepage to fill in my registration info, I feel fickle technology tester jumping from one toy to the next. Oh well. At least I can feed my Twitter feed into my Jaiku feed. *sigh*
