Plurk - New micro-blog service

I came across Plurk.com a new micro-blogging service which is gaining some popularity. Plurk is similar to twitter.com as both are micro-blogs allowing users to type in only a limited number of characters.

Plurk allows 140 characters to be typed at once and gives some smileys to add to your message. The site then displays a nice time line of all your 'plurks' with the most recent ones on the left and the others on the right which can be scroll by mouse dragging.

The site gives points to active users, these points are called Karma. It provides widgets to add to your site which shows your recent plurks. The site also allows mobile users to text message their plurks to the site.
