Heello: A Twitter Clone

Remember I was pretty excited when I found out that Heello would finally launch on August 10? Well today (in America) it’s August 10 and I’m not so excited anymore. Why? Let me show you:


Looks familiar?


And this? (especially notice that camera over there, haven’t you seen that before?)


And this?

I think you already guessed why I’m not excited anymore. That’s right, Heello looks and acts almost exact the same like Twitter. But instead of tweeting, you send “pings” to your followers. Instead of retweeting, you “echo” other posts. And instead of following, friends “listen” to their friends.

It kinda reminds me about the similarities between Facebook en Google +. Except Google Plus made some small but important changes (like their “friendship circles” and other much better privacy settings), which were necessary to survive in the social media world.

But let’s not start about Google Plus. It has already enough attention.

What dou you think of Heello?
