    Why is 'silc' better? I'm pretty sure IRC is still massive and will remain big with enthusiasts.

    I use IRC to run my twitter bot, so basically I open a private room, and post to Twitter via IRC, and since IRC is easy to write scripts, it makes for a great twitter auto posting bot

    Why wouldn't it be? It takes quite a lot to kill off a protocol as popular as IRC...

    Right, because it has "secure" in the name, it must be better than the other that does not

    You do realize that irc supports SSL since ages right? Doesn't get more secure than that.
