- A simple way to post short status updates.
- A list of people who’s post you follow.
- A timeline that mashes the posts from those people together into one stream.

Today I learned more about an upcoming service that I’ve been keeping my eye on for some time, that will bring these pieces together in what looks like a great way. Exciting times!
