New Microblogging Service Hycku: What’s Up (in 7 words)

Author:

There’s a new microblogging service in town and for those of you who love your Haikus, this is for you. It’s called Hycku and it asked you “What’s Up? (in 7 words)”.

Hycku might sound a little similar to Twitter, with its 255 character limit, but it’s the 7 word limit that sets it apart. It’s all about the poetic form of the Haiku.

As for the current features, you can upload your profile picture, simultaneously post to your Facebook and Twitter accounts and add an image (as you can see in the photo above) to your update. If you want to add a link, it counts towards your 7 word limit.

Here are a few of the most current updates on Hycku.

I can hycku. Can you? Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!! #Winning!

And do we RT or RH? #retweet

Trying this out. Kind of nervous. Pie.

There’s also a lot of talk about if the chicken came before the egg. Yep, people are really trying to get the hang out this Hycku business.

What do you think – Will you Haiku on Hycku?
