Luke Bozier, Louise Mensch’s Ex-Business Partner, Launches Social Network With Ten Character Limit

After the collapse of the pair’s social network Menshn, Bozier has another plan to revolutionise the way we communicate online

1. Luke Bozier is a former New Labour adviser who co-founded the short-lived social network Menshn with Conservative MP Louise Mensch.

The website closed down in 2013 after Mensch disowned Bozier in the wake of his arrest for allegedly possessing indecent images of children. He was later let off with a police caution.

2. Bozier has now come back with a new app, ‘Babl’ that has just been released for iPhone.

Apple App store

The app launched this month for iOS and is now available from the App store. It has been out for Android since the start of this year.

3. The app doesn’t have a huge following yet, having amassed 18 followers on Twitter.


For some reason the app’s cover picture are the breasts of anonymous women.

4. The app has a svelte home-feed that shows your friends’ brief broadcasts


There’s also a Snapchat-like option to make messages private, and images can be attached to posts.

5. Here’s BuzzFeed’s attempt at sharing a picture of a ‘mouth-watering’ quorn moussaka.


Our dreams were sadly too big for Babl.
