  • Stweet: Twitter marries Google Maps
    by Mike
    Posted May 11th, 2009 at 6:13 am
    If Google Maps and Twitter were to ever wed and conceive a child, what would it be? That question I can now finally answer: Stweet. Stweet allows you to add in Google Maps info and pictures to your tweets making sending your information to a potential predator or other creeper all the more easier. Yaaaay! In all seriousness, this is a pretty cool marriage that surprisingly took even this long to come to market. If you're a Twit-o-holic and loving knowing where everyone is (or everyone kno...

    Blackberry users are a funny bunch. They generally like information to be quick and to the point. Like Apple's slogan, everything has to "just work". So far, the Twitter clients that have been popping up for Blackberry, such as, TwitterBerry and UberTwitter just to name a couple, while operating and getting the job done, aren't exactly the most intuitive nor pretty to look at. However, Boy Genius has teamed up with Dossy Shiobara to bring the Blackberry and Twitter community what looks t...
  • Twishitter: Because knowing the porcelain habits of fellow tweeters is so very important

    You may be looking at the title, disgusted, and thinking to yourself that no one could possibly want something like this. While I find the basis of the app humerous, I know some people simply won't. The main purpose of Twishitter is to aggregate together all tweets concerning bathroom habits. However, due to the rampant use of "poo" words, the Twishitter timeline is actually getting clogged with bits and pieces of random tweets unrelated to actual potty time fun. Hopefully for the sake of ...

    While November was a low point for many Twitter users alike as the drop dead easy and efficient SMS method of tweeting was wiped from Candian carriers' repitrouer, 2009 is a new year to celebrate and embrace love and happiness. Mushy crap aside, it appears as if the quarrels between Twitter and the Canadian cellular providers, Fido and Rogers, that persisted since last November, have finally been resolved as Canadian mobile tweeters can now again tweet until their hearts content by using the ...

    While Twitter has been consuming every type of media outlet the last short while, MySpace has been relatively unnoticed.  Sure it was the social networking giant that started it all.  However, with Facebook and Twitter quickly adding users and growing, MySpace seemed if it had lost its momentum and innovation.  Really, the users that may not be using the desktop version all too often anymore are simply changing the way they access MySpace.  MySpace vice president, John Faith announced at...
  • Twitter to fade into oblivion because Oprah hasn’t updated her profile in 4 days?

    Twitter has no doubt gained some pretty hefty media attention since the Ashton Kutcher vs. CNN race.  (No need to link...the stories are everywhere, spend five seconds on'll find it).  Twitter has gone so mainstream that there was even a segment on Oprah where she tweeted her first tweets to the world.  Since that momentous day 11 long days ago, Oprah has tweeted a mere twenty times.  Is Oprahs possible boredom a potential issue Twitter should worry about?  In a nutshell: h...

    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 8:12 am
    Twitter is no doubt the latest craze, though a large part of the recent traffic spike could be attributed to all of the media coverage concerning the now infamous Ashton Kutcher vs. CNN race to one million followers. Celebrity draw aside, Twitter has been growing each month at levels that any company or business would die for. Microsoft being the tech giant that they are, are constantly looking for ways to bring in more revenue. In this case by means of a new service in the form of Twitter...

    Ok, this is by far the coolest Twitter related news I have seen in most likely ever.  Are you such a Twitter junky that you risk your job, income, house, family, etc. on letting the world know about your life in 140 or less characters?  If so, now you can do so a bit more safely and confidently.  SpreadTweeter is an ingenious program that will disguise you Tweeting habits by way of a fake Excel looking window.  Instead of the usual flashy and graphic rich appearance of pretty much every ...

    If you haven't been following the ongoing and quickly progressing drama that is building between Ashton Kutcher and CNN, Ashton declared just mere days ago that he wants to be the first Twitter user to break 1,000,000 followers.  However Mr. Kutcher has some competition: CNN.  *Interesting side note...the CNN Twitter account wasn't even run by CNN until recently.  Instead a man by the name of James Cox, a San Francisco native held that honor.  However, CNN has since comindeered said acco...
