However, most of the persons I know also use Plurk or use it instead of Twitter. What is it and why do most prefer plurking over tweeting? My curiosity led me to check it out. It has a very nice user interface plus the timeline thing is so cool. The plurks are also threaded conversations and you can even add emoticons. It took me a while before creating an account there. I regret that I did not sign-up early. I realized I should have done it before. Now, I have just registered the username jomartigcal.
