?What were his goals in developing this program?
Le Meur wanted to make video uploading easier for those with webcams. He also plans on having more interaction between professional and user-created material. He originally wanted to have this be almost like a video Twitter. As the program grows, users will hopefully be able to record skype conversations and connect to RSS feeds like facebook.¹

?What is the current status of the application?

On the upside, Seesmic just announced that it had bought Twhirl in late 2008, and has 20,000 users to date. Yet it has been announced that one-third of employees were let go in early October 2008. Yet, it needs to be noted that it was only 7 employees. Le Meur forecasts a weak fund-raising future for the company.¹
