You can read the entire conversation transcript right here http://nurph.com/bhamchat/logs/12-January-2011 and it features the following Twitter community members...- @bhamchat, the moderator
- and @sheets
But why would @bhamchat have chosen to use Nurph in the first place? Here are just some of the reasons that @bhamchat would have noted when migrating their Twitter chat session over to Nurph:
- Twitter: Limited to 140 chars.
- Twitter: Hashtag participants have to include the hashtag in every tweet.
- Twitter: Hashtag participants broadcast their hashtag tweets to ALL their followers.
- Twitter: No moderation. Anyone can spam your hashtag.
- Twitter: Pulling together transcripts is tricky.
- Nurph: No character limit. It's real-time chat!
- Nurph: No need to include a hashtag in every remark. Just chat naturally.
- Nurph: Participants don't broadcast their every remark to their followers.
- Nurph: Moderation for free. You can hand pick the people who can chat (only the people you follow), and everyone else can watch.
- Nurph: Transcripts come for free, and on easily shared URLs.
- Nurph: Transcripts read much more like a cohesive conversation the than 140 character hashtag search results do.
- Nurph: Twitter profiles, @Anywhere and tweet-streaming are baked right in to the core of Nurph. The integration with Twitter is almost seamless.
