Jordanian Founders of Twitter’s Arabic Clone Launch Zoofs: Most Tweeted Youtube Videos eMagazine Site

2 May, 2010

Kareem Arafat and his friends at tootcorp, the mother company that launched around 2 years ago WatWet,Twitter’s Arabic clone- has launched a new online project this time around Twitter it self.

The new project called Zoofs features an interface that contains the most popular Youtube videos on Twitter and represent them in a nice interface. Zoofs enables users to run these video without leaving the site and supports HTML 5.

Users on Zoofs site can browse videos by categories ( tech, gaming ..etc.) and filter them by showing only those that were uploaded on YouTube in the past 72 hours. The site also contains recommended videos from team Zoofs .

How does Zoofs find the most popular youtube videos? No specific idea, and as I am in Syria right now, I will email Kareem for an answer.

Zoofs somehow competes with Toot Crops own video sharing site for Arabia: Ikbis and to a degree with Twitvid a realtime video sharing site for Twitter which was launched in May 2009 by Jordanian entrepreneur  Mohammad Al Adham and his cofounders. TwitVid though is based on Silicon Valley, the social site has over 1 millions visits per month and recently launched its Andriod app .

Zoofs is an interesting idea and has some interesting UI concepts, I have stumbled across another site that features your the tweets of people you follow in a magazine style but forgot its URL :(

The question is, Is Zoofs a signal to the end of WaWet? lets wait for Kareem’s answer.
