Naturally, Woofer won’t be as successful as Twitter, and that’s not the point either. If it was, they wouldn’t spoof Twitter’s design and everything. The hint is in that flap in the top right, promoting Shuffletime. Woofer is nothing other than a fun site meant to garner some buzz for the developer. And what do you know, it worked!
