For those who aren't familiar with Scoop.it, it's a web based platform for collecting and curating content based around themes, with it collects together in an interactive magazine like format. It also allows 'curators' to comment on the materials they collect and share the additions to their collections through a wide range of other social media platforms (including Twitter). This gives it a form of micro-blogging capability, especially as visitors to the site can also interact around the curated content and build conversations about it.

If you have ever tried to build a conversation with multiple people asynchronously on Twitter, you will know how confusing that can become, but on Scoop.it the interaction appears below the content being discussed, so you can quite easily have multiple conversations on-going at the same time.
