This is built-in to Jabber. I use my server (instantisp.net) and I have
people added such as temas, reatmon, etc. that use the jabber.org server.
The server keeps the connection open.

Yesterday, scientists at Johns Hopkins revealed that beer
contains small traces of female hormones.  To prove their theory
they fed 100 men 12 cans of beer and observed that 100% of them
started jabbering instantly and couldn't drive.
