Status: Open Source Twitter

August 9, 2010

There is an open source rival to Twitter: Status.netI’m told that it’s the wordpress of the microblogging world…

Status.net was founded by programmer Evan Prodromou in 2008 as an open-source alternative to Twitter, and operates much like WordPress does for blogging: the company’s free software allows individuals or companies to run a Status.net server that connects to other microblogging servers (it can feed updates into Twitter and other services as well), but it also offers an enterprise version that is hosted and run by Status.net, as well as a subscription support service. Among others, the software is used by the creator of the Twitter account and upcoming TV series S***MyDadSays.
