Star Community Newspapers:

Seeing that Tweeters were posting “worthless dribble,” programmer Jonathan Leger decided to come up with a site that has focus.

“People were tweeting thoughts with no application, like what they ate for breakfast or that they’re walking the dog,” he said. “I wanted to have something focus on a subject matter and have useful information. is practical micro-blogging.”

Leger launched on July 17 and provides a place where people can go and offer advice on a specific subject matter. Other “tipsters” can vote the tip’s credibility positively or negatively, which moves the tip higher or lower among the other tips provided in the query.

If a tip receives a certain amount of negative votes, it will be deleted.
