Plurk?

Twitter clone Plurk has crossed my path three times via various blogs and tweets today. I checked it out - it's obviously for kids. This gave it away, from the FAQ:
What is Plurk? A really snazzy site that allows you to showcase the events that make up your life, and follow the events of the people that matter to you, in deliciously digestible short messages called plurks.
And:
What are qualifiers? Qualifiers are yummy color coded words which are commonly used by our members to start plurks.
Mind you, do kids really say 'snazzy' and 'yummy'? Sounds more like my Mum trying to be 'down with the kids'. No offence, Mum.

And the timeline-style dashboard confused my aging and addled brain.
