Heello.com – Another Way To Tweet

  • August 15, 2011

Heello.comLooking for alternatives to Twitter? If you are, please feel free to check this new web service out. Heello has been created by TwitPic’s founder Noah Everett, and although the site has existed for more than a year, it’s just become open to the general public. Any person who visits it now will be able to create an account for free, and (to all intents and purposes) send out tweets that are meatier by default.

You see, what Heello enables people to do is to send micro-messages (140 characters in length) that can include media such as images and videos. These micro-messages go by the name of “pings”, and something that sets the site apart from Twitter is that it has a stream of messages which is updated automatically. That is, the site features a continuous flow of messages. If you do begin using the site, you won’t ever have to update anything manually.

And that’s the extent of originality as far as this new service goes. There are no features that could really take Heello above Twitter. Not even a notch. And (unfortunately for its creators) there’s nothing that makes Heello better than any of the innumerable Twitter clones that are already available elsewhere. Ekko, Identica … they mostly do the same. And they got there first, too.
