Prepare to be spammed globally.  Twttr just launched, a mobile social software app for SMSing your social network developed by Odeo.  It’s slightly simpler than Dodgeball, not location centric and a bit more viral.  Biz Stone calls it present-tense blogging. Ev notes you might want to upgrade your SMS plan and they are working on compatibility outside the US.  To me its reply-to-all baked in your phone.

If they support MMS and let me send a photo to twttr and CC flickr, it will be a killer app.  But for now, put my SMS’ in a sidebar widget or give me feeds I can splice.

Yes, I am a twtt.

It's kinda wierd, John Resig and I had been thinking about building this exact system, though it never really got past the, "Wouldn't it be cool if" stage. Meh, I'm just glad it exists now. It was a personal itch I wanted to scratch and I'm not going to complain at all if someone else scratches it. Plus the Odeo guys made it much prettier than I would have.
