Word of the Week: Twingr
Twingr: A while back, we discussed Ning, a site that allows users to create their own, fully functional social networks. Twingr is a similar tool for the microblogging enthusiast. This site allows the user to create his own customized microblogging site and invite users to join in the conversation. This is a great tool for friends looking for an alternative method to email for keeping in touch or for small businesses trying to streamline communication in the office. Users can also create a Twingr community based on a certain area of interest and let the network grow among strangers. With the same basic functionalities as Twitter, the current king of the microblogs, Twingr communities allow its users to post interesting links, direct message other users, and even share their own deep thoughts or daily activities.
