In the ongoing war of what social networking site is better, Twitter developers are following Facebook's lead and introducing voice chat to the microblogging site.
Jajah Inc. said it is beta testing the service that would allow Twitter users to have two minute voice conversations with each other without ever exchanging a phone number.
“Twitter envy: Facebook has it, absolutely,” Jeremiah Owyang, a social media consultant at the Altimeter Group told the New York Times. “Facebook absolutely recognizes that Twitter is a threat, and they’re doing what they can to replicate the features before Twitter gets mainstream adoption.”
Not to be outdone, Twitter announced today it raised another $50 million in funding and is now valued at $1 billion. Take that Facebook.
