Pownce is one of the pioneer in Microblogging together with Twitter and Jaiku. Unfortunately they are no longer in business. I am guessing because a lot of people actually uses twitter. I am one that is different because I have always prefer other interfaces such as Pownce and Jaiku, then comes Plurk. I somehow like plurk interface but I am not a big time microblogger.
It is sad to see one of my account going away because I had friends there. I guess it has to go because they are not profitting and I am also seeing more and more people registering an account and getting thousands of friends then link back to their spammy homepage.
If you go to Pownce, you will see this:-
Bye Bye Pownce!
