Now that Twitter's popularity has reached critical mass, parodies and mock businesses like Flutter will start to lampoon the ubiquitous microblogging site.

Flutter is Slate Magazine's lampooned version of Twitter. Rather than the standard 140 character limit Twitter uses, Flutter cuts that figure down to just 26 letters and calls it nanoblogging. Check out the video above to see all of Flutter's shiny new features.

Implications - The relevance of social media and microblogging sites like Twitter is unmatched in today's culture. Businesses and other websites that capitalize on this relevance through humor or other means will see huge consumer interest from the masses who are all invested in the new wave of social media.
