The microblogging service Plurk is living a quiet life in the shadow of the all-powerful Twitter. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t being developed, in fact, Amir Salihefendic just announced the addition of realtime search to Plurk. Yes, Twitter has already got that, but Plurk takes it one step further by indexing every plurk ever sent (50 million or so), as opposed to Twitter’s past 2 months. Nice.

It seems as if microblogging service Plurk is blocked in China, at least according to Amir Salihefendic who works on the project. TechCrunch seemingly confirms. Bad news for Chinese Plurk lovers, and users who in any way like to communicate with people in China.
Does this mean that Twitter is next?
