Asia Bizz: Ubermedia is looking ahead and will compete with social media company Twitter; the company is all set to launch its own social networking site on the lines of twitter. Ubermedia has also coded many applications for the micro-blogging giant Twitter.
The main focus of what Ubermedia will look into is the restrictions that Twitter as a platform has – one simple example will be the elimination of the restriction of just 140 characters for a tweet. Other problems related to the UI will also be eliminated by Ubermedia.
Twitter has around 200 million users and many social media sites have tried to compete with the social media giant. Twitter jumped to a huge 282% from last year with the increase of tweets per day to about 155 million.
Ubermedia has been not that happy with Twitter as the company had asked them to shut down two applications they had made in the month of February; to add to this, Twitter asked Ubermedia to change the names of two apps – the Ubertwitter and Ubersocial. This may have led to tension between the two companies to begin with.
