Launched November 2014

Natter is a social network, often referred to as a "microblogging" or even "micro-microblogging" platform. Natter allows its users or “natterers” to post up to 100 characters and an image in each post, which can then be seen by any online users.

Natter was first launched in 2014 as a website at natter.com but has since launched apps for both iOS and Android. The user base has grown and describes themselves as the natter community. Originally, each post could only contain up to three words.

On Friday, July 29, 2016, Natter ceased operations, due to competition, as well as running out of money.

In February 2017 Natter relaunched with a redesigned chat style app including direct messaging between users.

Community

Since its relaunch, the Natter user base has grown rapidly after receiving significant aid from posts made on other social media sites, such as Tumblr and Twitter. Natter has thus developed a tight-knit community to the extent that it has commonly been referred to as a family by regular users.

The community often puts on role-playing events dubbed "god wars", in which users change their icons and adopt characterized personas.[1] These events have resulted in the development of "Natter Lore" surrounding some users and the nature of the social media site.
