Plurk From Your iPhone

Plurk is a micro-blogging service that allows you to send and receive updates ( “plurks”) in a timeline view. What’s different about Plurk from all other micro-blogging platforms is that when you start a Plurk, all replies are kept in that single thread making it easier to follow and view both sides of a conversation. No need to search hashtags or search specific keywords/usernames in order to follow a conversation—Plurk threads allow users to interact with one another and reply to each other’s comments on one page. Plurk also lets users express how they feel with verbs and playful emoticons. And now there’s a Plurk application available to both iPhone and iPod touch users at no cost thanks to Ryan Lim. (Thanks Ryan Lim — you’re cool. 🙂 )

With the Plurk app, you can view your timeline, read and respond to plurks, send and receive public or private plurks, and view profiles. You can add emoticons to your plurks as well thanks to the emoticon hints. The only feature missing is the the horizontal timeline view which honestly isn’t a problem for me.

So if you’re already a Plurk fanatic and have an iPhone or iPod touch, check out the new Plurk app and let me know what you think. And don’t forget to add me too:

Save Time Post at is the most effective way to update your status on multiple social networks. A single post to can update 16 popular social services at the same time so you don’t have to sign into each account individually. You can post a status update, a blog, or micro-blog through one platform and posting a link won’t be a problem at all – will automatically convert it to a shorter link before posting to your services.

This week my status updates to Facebook, LinkedIn, Mashable, Myspace, Plaxo Pulse, Plurk, and Twitter and took less than a minute to complete. If I signed into each account individually, it would have taken me even longer. saves me time and it can save you time as well.Go to and sign up with the beta code “pingofpings”.
