Is Tumblr the Next Twitter?

If 140 characters isn’t enough room for all the insightful things you have to say, then maybe you’re ready for Tumblr.

The New York Times goes into detail about the attributes of the blogging service, which includes the ability to go on for more than 140 characters, the addition of photos and other content, and its ease of use. For smartphones, there’s also Posterous. The Atlantic and John Mayer are among Tumblr’s users so far.

Twitter‘s appeal is the ability to provide a quick update in real-time, so it seems Tumblr isn’t really an alternative. But the company says it’s getting 30,000 new users per day, so there’s some appeal and perhaps some new publicity uses. If you’re on Tumblr or have any feedback, please share in the comments.
