Future features

This will allow users to send 300 character SMS messages to offline mobile phones. The sender will also be able to receive a reply to their online Whispurr account. Whispurr will also implement a networking feature [2] whereby users create their own networks of friends for different networks. Whispurr will allow members to hide networks from each other which will provide added privacy to people and their information.

History

Whispurr was first founded in February 2009 by Hakan Guzelgoz (Turkey), Stefano Rocco (Italy) and Conor Devine (Ireland) based on their desire to create a micro blogging service which allows users to communicate online and offline via SMS message. After a few months of programming and testing along with a design provided by Kerem Suer (United States), Whispurr (beta stage) was launched on 1 September 2009.

The word Whispurr is a play on the word whisper coined by Vivienne Condell-Insalaco (Ireland).
