Micro-blogging: Yahoo Meme and Blogger

Unknown to me, Yahoo has been working on a micro-blogging service that is similar to and, possibly, inspired by Twitter, like India Tweets has been.

Unlike Twitter, Yahoo Meme allows pictures, videos, music etc to be posted, like in a normal blog, along with comments. The description, however, is limited to 100 characters as against 140 in Twitter. Yahoo had quietly launched this product in Spanish and is now doing so in English.

While Yahoo has addressed the text only limitation of Twitter, I feel that the limit of 100 characters is too little. As you would have already seen in India Tweets, the essence of a story can be told in 140 words and a reader does not have to go to another site for that.

Perhaps Blogger will keep this in mind when it launches a competing product.
