At BBspot we don't worry about boring technical specifications or mind-numbing growth figures when doing our comparisons. We leave those tedious details to other sites who are more concerned with accuracy than entertainment. In the end our awards are just as worthless as theirs, so why not have some fun with it. For this showdown, messaging / microblogging / overhyped services Twitter and Pownce face off. If you're still reading this introduction you really should improve your Web page scanning skills. We put images and bolded things for a reason, you know. Get on with it already.
