Hellotxt bids goodbye

HelloTxt logo

Status update service Hellotxt is closing its doors to the community. A letter released to its users today reads that the website will be closing down effective August 7, 2012. With other free status update services like Ping.fm going the pay-per-use route, the future of free status update services seem bleak. Full release follows.

Status update aggregators make cross-site posting for many, but it is arguably taking the “social” out of social media in addition to being prone to spamming. What do you think? Share your thoughts below.
