Did finger just make a comeback....

Yeah, twtxt is often compared to finger, probably because finger displayed the content of your .project and .plan files. And you can probaby callthese the beginning of microblogging if you want to. But for the record, your twtxt file does not show any private information (unless you want to)!

Wasn't there a blogging platform that was started sometime last year that was just plaintext?

This reminds me of that.

Nice and simple. Now it just needs users.
