China’s twitter eauquivalent Sina’s Weibo might very soon pass Twitter in popularity, writes Tudou.com co-founder Marc van der Chijs on his weblog, although the rest of the world is still largely ignorant about this internet service.
Weibo is certainly already miles ahead in terms of functionality. But most people outside China have no idea about the service and its functionality. Beijing-based blogger Bill Bishop therefore put a post on his blog today with an embedded presentation of Weibo’s history and main functions, including lots of screenshots.
Silicon Valley pay attention: this product is much better than Twitter, and Twitter (or other clones or even social network sites) can probably learn a lot just by looking at some of Weibo’s functions. It’s so good that I wonder if it might actually one day be able to take on Twitter.
