Plurk

Plurk offers users a way to chronicle and share the things they do, the way they feel, and all the other things. Plurk is similar to Twitter in its basic functionality, except that each initial comment is given a thread of responses, making it more conversational in style. Plurk asks users to select qualifiers such as loves, likes, is, hates, etc for each message. This means every message you write is in third person.

Like Pownce, Plurk lets you embed Flickr images and YouTube videos. Plurk has added image hosting to the site to ease the posting of photos.

Additionally, Plurk differs from Twitter in its user interface. Plurk shows your friends’ updates in a horizontally scrolling timeline.
