Plurk, Plurk-Plurkan Na!

I received an invitation to join the newest craze in the blogosphere - - through a Twitter message (thanks Rom!). I tried signing up immediately but for some strange reason it wouldn't accept my registration, so I let it stew for awhile until I got an email invitation from AJ.

I'm now "plurking"!

So does this mean I'm going to abandon Twitter? Hmmm, I'm not really sure yet though a lot of my friends from Twitter have signed up on Plurk as well.

I've just been using Plurk for a couple of hours but it's been fun so far and here are the things I like about it:

1. It's easy to catch up if you went offline for a couple of hours.
2. You can just scroll through the plurks and you see it on a timeline.
3. Like Gmail, plurk-back (or answer backs) are threaded together.
4. I like the interface, it's not boring.
5. It's easier to add/remove friends.

So what do you think of Plurk? And what do you call people who Plurk? Plurkers? Plurkaholics? Plurkanoids? Plurkees?

Maybe if I get a new set of hamsters I'm going to name them "Twitty" "Plurkee" and "Jaikee". Heh.


  1. It's "plurkers", according to the website. :) Twitty, Plurkee and Jaikee? LOL! Powncy, wala? I must say that Plurkee is the cutest one, methinks.

  2. Don't forget Pownce! Or Powncer! :-)

  3. Actually a client application similar to twitterfox or twhirl would nice.

  4. Hi, Ai! I got an email invite from Liz (Strauss) too this morning. I haven't checked it out yet. But based on your post, I just might. So, let's plurk! Or should it be let's be plurkers! =)

  5. i've got invites, but i have not registered yet. it's like there would be duplicates of what we are already doing? dunno...
