Uses A Twitter or StackOverflow WordPress Theme

If you are looking for WordPress theme featuring look and feel of Twitter.com or StackOverflow.com, then the new WordPress P2 theme could be a closer match at this time being.

Best of all, it is free, available on WordPress.com as well as download from WordPress.org for WordPress-powered blog on personal hosting!

I just stumble upon the P2 theme, seems to me it has similar functionality of micro-blogging web service, like Twitter, and Question & Answer website like StackOverflow of Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood.

According to Matt, the P2 is regarded as the successor to Prologue, both of Automattic Inc (the web development corporation of Matt and gang who develop the free but priceless blogging software and related web service, i.e. WordPress, bbPress, Akismet, Gravatar, Ping-O-Matic, etc).

Summary of WordPress P2 theme features:
  • Write and publish posts / comments right on the home page. This notable feature provides clean and elegant user interface. You will likely forget about the WordPress dashboard after using P2 for some times :-)
  • AJAX style of showing posts and comments immediately after publishing, without having to reload the page,
  • Toggle inline comments on the homepage,
  • Live notification of new posts and comments to subscribers,
  • Live tags suggestion based on the previously used tags,
  • Handy keyboard shortcuts to interact with P2, e.g. c to compose a new post; j to go to the next item; k to go to the previous item; r to reply; e to edit; o to show and hide comments; t to go to the top; ESC to cancel

What is missing? Well, I suggest having P2 included as one of the default WordPress themes in the next release.
