There is one feature that Plurk has that Twitter does not have, and that is the ability to go beyond the number of characters in a normal Plurk. Several months ago Plurk introduced Plurk Paste.
Following are several screen shots showing the process.
Your Plurk turns read, and you get a notice below the box that you have "Too many characters. Try Plurk Paste ..."
When you click on Plurk Paste, the following pops up.
When you click submit, the following is placed in the box.
When you click on "Plurk", this is what goes on your wall.

Purpose: It is very important for constant communication to take place between the students and the instructor/facilitator of a face-to-face or online course.
Objectives: Live-Streaming (TwitCasting vs. Periscope) provides a way for both the students and the instructor to share up-to-date information with the class from any venue by way of laptop, tablet, or smart phone. Live-Streaming (TwitCasting vs. Periscope) also provides a great way for administrators to share with faculty, staff, parents, community, and students.
