Why Jaiku, Not Twitter?

Helge: I agree with the mobile aspect. Commented on Jaiku, "Twitter has more users but Jaiku delivers more features. This can be used for event and conference microblogging. Twitter too, but it's not so fluent. Discussion on Jaiku is easier. This is my guess work http://kk-net.blogspot.com/2007/10/helge..."

The aspect of integrating Google services and building an own alternative to Facebook is a very compelling vision.

Why Jaiku, Not Twitter?: "Why Jaiku, Not Twitter? A lot of the discussion of Jaiku's acquisition by Google seems to see Jaiku as a competitor to twitter. For example, Mashable.com says: This is somewhat surprising news considering the perceived dominance of Twitter in the so-called “lifestreaming” space.

Additionally, Twitter is co-founded by Evan Williams, who was the creator of Blogger, which was previously acquired by Google. In a world where price is no object for Google, it’s interesting that they would opt for Jaiku and not Twitter.

The answer seems pretty obvious to me. Jaiku isn't a 'lifestreaming' company per se. They are a mobile company in the business of creating smarter presence applications. Far from being a runner up behind twitter, they are a leader in a category most people haven't fully grasped yet. Google is clearly thinking a lot about mobile, and so they do grasp it."
