Tworl

The service connects random users via IM. It’s restricted to the AIM client for now, but support for Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk/Jabber and MSN Messenger is in the works – perhaps even Skype.

To connect to a random stranger, you just sign up on Tworl.com and enter some details about yourself – including your AIM username and password (Tworl claims they won’t abuse this). You can then conduct a search for other users based on their age and gender – the minimum age range is “16-24″, and the maximum is “40 and up”. Once you’ve made your choice, Tworl launches the IM client on your desktop and attempts to connect you to another user. Tworl also displays a page with all your details, a member photo (if available) and a Google Maps mashup that displays the location of the two participants. However, all the attempts I made failed because the other user was unresponsive.
