Swabr is a new service providing organizations with a platform for creating their own private microblogging networks. Members of your Swabr microblogging network can share and respond to short messages in the style of Twitter or Edmodo.
To create your private microblogging network on Swabr sign-up using the email address of your organization. Then invite people to join your network. To join your network other users will have to an email address from your organization's domain. For example, I created a network that only people with a @freetech4teachers.com email address can join.
Applications for Education
If you're looking to create a closed online environment in which the faculty or students can share short messages on school-related issues, Swabr could be a good tool for that.
