Nigeria: NaijaPulse: Nigerian Microblogging Service

Loy's analysis of NaijaPulse, a new Nigerian microblogging service: “Unlike Twitter, the site allows you to create groups, features users and has a link for popular posts. If you favour a post, it will be featured as a POPULAR on the right sidebar. You can also tag a word by preceding it with the hashtag (#).”

    I spotted this on Twitter. Not sure exactly what it is…I suppose its a kind of public Microblogging service. I could post messages and comments without having to register.

    It allows you to create a unique url for chat streams aswell…judging by the number of posts its still in its infancy but it looks like it could catch on…
