Twitter-like Mixi Echo keeps going

Despite of Twitter’s founder Evan Williams’ unplesant, Mixi’s microblogging feature “Mixi Echo” one month trial is announced to be extended for “uncertain period”.

This feature was originally planned to be closed on September 1st 2008, however, because of “popular demand”, we decide to extend the period of service. The end date is undecided.

Mixi’s main social networking service is still in Beta after 4 years, 2 years from IPO. Beta or non-Beta seems not a matter for 15 million users, and they have been managing huge traffic quite well without big server trouble so far. Mixi Echo’s “tantative status” is Mixi’s another excuse in advance.
