Reactions to pig culling on twitter

Here is a link to latest responses on Twitter on the Egyptian decision to kill all the pigs. For sure an unprecedented decision like that is making a buzz around the world. Read what other people are saying. The least description of it is that it is an overreaction.

Jaiku: No more international SMS

Jaiku announced yesterday that they will support SMS to the US only. Jaiku was down for more than 24 hours because they were converting the software to an open-source version called JaikuEngine.

They will also stop feed-fetching which was a nice feature that created a Facebook like mini-feed (or FriendFeed like) on the users' homepage to follow the activities of your friends on other sites.

In short, Jaiku now is going to be pretty useless.

State security is now following YOU!

The way Twitter notifies you by email about new followers brought me an idea. What if instead of user X is following you, something more serious was following you. Something evil that usually follows people.

State security is now following you on Twitter

أنا مجنون بحبك يا تويطر

موقع twitterholic يعرض أحصائيات عن من هم أشهر شخصيات على تويطر و المفاجئة أن وائل عباس (الوعي المصري) يتبعة 1162 شخص! و ذلك لخدمة الأخبار التي يرسلها.

تويطر .. التامجوتشي الجديد !؟

هل تتذكر التاماجوتشي، اللعبة التافهة التي تذكرك بالجيم أند واطش ولكن أنتشرت في منتصف التسعينيات في اليابان ثم أنطلقت الى العالم كله في أيدي من لا يعلم أن هناك ما هو أروش من أن تمسح الفضلات الاكترونية و تغذي كائن الكتروني معاق ؟ دي كانت الخطوة الأولة في أستأناس البرمجيات.

الحقيقة أن التاماجوتشي كفكرة ليست بطالة و لكن لمدة ٤ دقائق فقط. الأهتمام و الولع في ذلك الوقت كان غير مفهوم. و البرامجيات متوقعه و جامدة من الصعب أن تحبها.

Twitter is cool

Twitter is a tumblelog. A cool one. You can add tiny posts from IM, SMS or web. With a social networking ability.

I like it, this is the kind of app I find more useful than IM to keep in touch with people. Simply telling people what's going on with me. Also cool when one reads those tiny posts after a year or so.
