What should I call "tweets" on my site?

If I want to implement a "tweeting" feature, I don't really think I should call them tweets since my site isn't twitter.com

Is there an official word for this sort of feature yet?

"time waster?" :)

Kidding!

Whatever you decide to call it, you might want to do that in private instead of public so you can retain the name/copyright...

Some things you don't ask for advice in public.

I don't intend on copyrighting it. I just wanted to know if there was a more general name for it I could use.

In short, no. Tweets are tweets. It's not "instant messaging" or ... anything except a "tweet" particularly if it uses that same methodology of sending... if it doesn't, then it isn't even a tweet...

All I meant was if this is something new, originating from your site, and is NOT a tweet, you might be on to something. :)
