I saw that Seesmic acquired Twhirl. Well done Loic and Marco. I love Twhirl. It’ by far the best twitter client right now. Seesmic support in Twhirl might be just the thing I need to start participating in Seesmic which I like but just can’t seem to get ingrained in my daily life. Great stuff.

    Seesmic is DOA. “can’t seem to get ingrained in my daily life” from a person who seemingly uses every web service? Sorry, doesn’t ring true. Seesmic is well crafted but ultimately not a good or useful product, and this “acquisition” will not change that.

      Loic is a gifted entrepreneur. He will weave and bob. This acquisition is proof of thatFred

    So, now when unsophisticated people from the enterprise sector ask me, “what’s to be gained by a small time developer giving away a tool or service for free?” I can point here. And point to many other new SAAS and web20 services that are slowly building towards a portfolio of applications that can replace licensed business software solutions.

    The widespread embrace of video conversations is still questionable in my head, but integration into Twhirl is a great way to get it in front of people. I’m far much more likely to do the occasional video post now than I would if it were a standalone app or i had to use is awesome, and really what has me using twitter again.

      This is interesting and I await to see how Loic will integrate. Twhirl is by far the best Twitter client in my experience. I think Seesmic has potential, but right now the site is French dominated. Not a bad thing, but it’s hard to get into the site when you can’t understand most of the videos.
