I stirred up quite a bit of noise with my post on the Twitblogs launch last week. Some commenters, as well as Twitblogs founders, were pissed off. I don’t mind, discussions are always interesting, and while some people seemed to mistake a news post for a review (which was not the case), it prompted me to dig deeper.
Among the funny things in the whole mess was TwitWall’s founder Michael E. Carluen’s comment on TechCrunch regarding Twitblogs. After having verified that it was indeed Michael who posted the comment, he agreed to do an interview with me to sort out things, as well as talk about TwitWall. read more

I’ve seen some of these services before, but it wasn’t until I read Michael Arringtons harsh treatment of Sam Sethi’s new venture, called Twitblogs. You might remember the Arrington-Sethi debacle back in 2007, the latter having been the editor of TechCrunch UK, and then crashed Blognation without paying its writers and employees. There’s a lot of bad blood there, and I’m not surprised to see the way Arrington handled Sethi’s latest offering.
That being said, I visited the site, and also checked in on its competitors. Or rather, the ones that Sethi ripped off, if TwitWall founder Michael E. Carluen (if it really is he) is to be believed. TwitWall is one of the competitors to Twitblogs, another one mentioned is Twitlonger, and I think I’ve seen even more of these. read more
