Plonesocial.microblog is part of the plonesocial suite.
This package provides a building block for Plone integrators who want to create a custom social business solution in Plone.
If you're an end-user looking for a pre-integrated solution, you should install plonesocial.suite instead.
Plonesocial.microblog provides a 'native' Plone microblogging solution that stores status updates in a performance-optimized site utility.
This component provides only the status update form and storage. To display the stored microblog messages, use plonesocial.activitystream in combination with plonesocial.microblog, or install the full plonesocial.suite.
Plonesocial.microblog provides a microblogging solution for Plone using core content types only, without any external dependencies. It does not require an external service and can be set up and run with a normal Plone buildout configuration.
The intention is to make this native solution as simple and as fast as possible. The current implementation can handle more than 100 new messages per second in a stock Plone installation on outdated hardware.
