Rejaw.com is a microblogging service with a hint of chat.

“Rejaw is a new way to communicate in real-time with friends, family, and co-workers. You can shout messages to your followers, or whisper to your friends. Monologue or dialogue, micro-blog or status update, soliloquy or dialectic – how you use Rejaw is up to you.” [Rejaw]

Features:

  • Real chat. Messages are delivered immediately.
  • Shouts and whispers. Shouts are publicly sent to your followers, whereas whispers are privately sent to selective recipients that you choose.
  • Images and movies. Just post a URL of an image or a YouTube video, and it shows up in your message.
  • Permalinks. Every shout or whisper has a permanent URL. It’s easy to link directly to a conversation.
  • Guests. Anyone can join the conversation, even if they don’t have an account on Rejaw.
  • Auto-closing. Shouts and whispers are closed when there is no activity for 3 days, which makes them static archives.
  • Find friends. You can find your friends who use Rejaw from your Facebook friends or Gmail contacts.
  • Desktop app. Rejaw Radar is a desktop application that keeps you up-to-date with the latest shouts, whispers and replies on Rejaw.

Yet another Twitter clone, you say? Maybe not. It was described [via Mashable] as a mixture of Twitter, Plurk, and Meebo. It’s free, so trying it out is a no-brainer. Maybe a *cross-platform* client would be a great addition.
