Creators of Echofon Want to Launch Competitor to Twitter

When there was still no good official application of Twitter in iOS platform, I remember well that Echofon led the absolute preference of our readers. Until Twitter Inc. came and beat out the application with your own Tweetie, which had been purchased shortly before. Azar of UberMedia, which seems to want to fight back on Twitter.

Information obtained by CNN realize that UberMedia seriously consider launching a service microblog that compete directly with our beloved Twitter. Long time the company has been having trouble with Twitter because of its many applications. Still, as solutions Echofon and Twydroid (both UberMedia) representing 11.5% of all tweets sent.

If Twitter Inc. close once the siege to applications UberMedia, the company could launch its microblogging and make use of capillary action that already has thanks to apps for Twitter. The catch, however, is another: more than 140 characters to write their updates and easier to understand interface.

Emitting sources prefer not to be identified. They claim that UberMedia is talking to the TweetDeck to get the service. It would be a grand negotiation, I believe, as TweetDeck has interests in various platforms (including app for Chrome, I use and recommend!).

With TweetDeck in hand, the company would still have more chances to catch on a microblogging.
