Pownce or Twitter?

Pownce, the new nanoblogging service that doubles as a person-to-person file transfer product, is often compared to Twitter. Both products enable you to “nanoblog” quick updates on what you’re doing. But the products have fundamental and important differences, and if you’re curious about which one you should be using, you need to know about them.
