Tumblr is a tumblelog site and is one of the nearest compitetor to twitter. A tumblelog is a variation of a blog that favors short-form, mixed-media posts over the longer editorial posts frequently associated with blogging. Common post formats found on tumblelogs include links, photos, quotes, dialogues, and video. Unlike blogs, tumblelogs are frequently used to share the author’s creations, discoveries, or experiences while providing little or no commentary.
Plurk looks to be a clone of twitter.Plurk is themed IM (Instant Messaging) for groups of people spread out on a time line. And if you like Twitter and Pownce, chances are, you’re going to like Plurk, too…The reason it is just so tempting to jump in head to feet with Plurk is because it doesn’t just offer the neurotic updaters of Twitter a chance to do their thing, but the media sharers of Pownce and the stalkers of Facebook to revel in inter connectivity and really a taste of every other fairly popular social website out there at the moment. As a social network, Plurk has huge potential. But that potential is potentially locked up elsewhere, on other services like Twitter and Pownce.
Pownce lets users post messages, links, files, or events. Messages posted to an account page are viewable by friends and “fans” of an individual. Once a message is posted, it can be replied to and forwarded, and there are a couple options for recipients (such as users that have not yet received the message).Pownce is also an advertising channel, charging a flat rate of $3 for an ad (a Pownce “note”) that is displayed 1000 times.

Jaiku’s interface looks a bit more polished and more “Web 2.0″ than Twitter’s, but in many ways the two are nearly identical. After a year and half of it's launch it was purchased by Google on October 9, 2007.Jaiku claims to be about letting your friends or coworkers know not only what you’re doing but also where you are via its mobile component—yet phone support is pretty limited. And though posts have a smaller size limit than Twitter, Jaiku more closely resembles a real blog site in that posts get their own pages, where comments can be added.
