identi.ca is a social microblogging service similar to Twitter, built on open source tools and open standards. Allows users to send text-based posts up to 140 characters long.
Over the last week or so I have noticed lots more identi Friends notifications coming through. I signed up a while ago and did not pay much attention now I see more and more traffic coming through on it. Are you using it yet and what tools do you use?
