UPDATE: 9.25.2008 List updated to correspond with our research: Enterprise Microsharing Tools Compared.

My list (based on Jeremiah’s) of publicly known “Twitter-like” microsharing tools for internal deployment within companies. I’m keeping it spare to make it easier to update. See Jeremiah’s list of tools for more explanation and descriptions. *I also include four open source applications reported by John Eckman.

  1. BlueTwit (IBM)
  2. ESME (SAP/Siemens SDN)
  3. *Jisko (AGPL)
  4. Laconica (better known as
  5. OraTweet (Oracle)
  6. Presently
  7. Prologue (WordPress theme by Automattic)
  8. SocialCast
  9. Status
  10. *Sweetter 2.0 (SUGUS)
  11. Trillr
  12. Twitter
  13. *Twoorl
  14. Yammer
  15. *Yonkly
  16. Iron Feed (no link yet)
  17. unannounced (no link yet. see our report, TBD)

I’m aware of roughly 5 other similar, but unannounced, projects. Guessing these 20 are the tip of the iceberg.

Joint Contact looks pretty awesome, has microsharing features and integrates with Twitter. Cool enough that we may try it, but, not really what we consider an internal microsharing tool. What we love most is that it’s using Twitter to send notifications and accept remote updates. This in/out “command line” function is an important function that we predict for enterprise microsharing tools.

IDidWork offers microshared track completion along with evaluation and performance, and it’s short and sexy like microsharing, but a social network it is not, even in the “you and your team task feed” group version.

It’s really amazing how quickly these all sprang up, now to sell them to IT.

I think microblogging is becoming recognized as both a team-builder and a productivity tool,
I like the reporting features of some, which will make it easier for management to understand the value.

J.J. Toothman September 11, 2008 at 5:21 pm

Laura — how many of these Twitter like tools integrate with mobile/sms? Prologue is the only I’m familiar with and I know it doesn’t. Seems the SMS “goes with you anywhere your cell phone does” component of Twiter is pretty critical. I know that for me – it’s what set it apart from other communication mediums.

hey thanks for the list – do you have a wiki up so we can all update this list together?

exciting times!

Laura Fitton September 11, 2008 at 10:02 pm

@Chinarut I wish i knew how to integrate a wiki into the blog, but I don’t. But as Jeremiah is doing, we will add to and update our lists per comments, new news, etc.

@jjtoothman my gut would guess at least half? but we are working on a matrix to determine how the offerings line up

@jfouts good insights, yes!

I’ve been using DeskAway – for close to 6 months now and i believe that they too are integrating Micro Blogging into their complete Project Management suite. I think that will drive more engagement within Project Management tools just like comment threads on status messages and more emphasis on status messages drove more status updates on Facebook. I personally think that will make PM tools such as DeskAway more useful – and cumulatively much more useful than microsharing tools.

What do you think?

Traction Software announced Live Blog in November 2008. It is a micro-messaging interface for the TeamPage E2.0 Social Software platform supporting workspace oriented wiki, blog, tagging, discussion, and document management. The Live Blog capability offers microsharing over the stable infrastructure so it inherits the same notification, search, versioning, access control, directory integration and other traits of the platform it runs on.

Paula Thornton April 15, 2009 at 10:58 am

The beauty of Live Blog is two-fold: 1) it is architecturally set up akin to a project — it can be used as a continuous container or individual ones can be established for specific ‘events’ 2) the containers are irrelevant in another sense because in the overall architecture of TeamPage each entry to the Live Blog is indexed just like each and every other entry in the entire instance, every blog/wiki entry and every comment…all equally accessible as individual ‘artifacts’, powered by the FAST search engine (optionally part of the install – but highly recommended).

Effectively the entire TeamPage architecture is designed for sharing: micro or otherwise. Various UI elements help ‘frame’ the desired experience. For example, it’s not really a blog or a wiki, but clearly facilitates mindsets that think in those terms.

TeamPage is the ideal chameleon to build an Enterprise 2.0 implementation around.

First of all I would like to say superb blog!

I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how
to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!
