A challenge for many who are new to Twitter is knowing what to say, how to say it, and how often to say it. But many have discovered that the 140-character limitation--even less when you are replying to someone--focuses the mind wonderfully, resulting in a new precision and elegance in their writing. Has Twitter, a classic geek invention, unwittingly spawned a new form of literature? I know I'm not the first person to think of this, and that I won't be the best writer to create in this form. But, hopeless idealist and all-around good guy that I am, I present my first three twittecdotes for your perusal and inspiration. The stories all involve my brushes with famous people, aka namedropping. Enjoy! -- Ballmer keynotes our gig. Arrives green room with secs to spare. Says "hi," then "excuse me." Cuts huge fart. Says "sorry." Then presents. -- Entered Bill's house, fir... (more)

Is Twitter Dumber Than Microsoft Bob?

There's a funny article in Web 2.0 Journal by an SEO consultant from Italy named Salvatore Genovese, who thinks that Twitter is the dumbest thing he's ever seen. The column appears next to a short piece I wrote about my twittecdotes. Salvatore thinks that Twitter is full of "spammers and crazy people." Yeah, and your point is?.... The world is full of spammers and crazy people, and Twitter is nothing more than a million-plus-strong flock of humanity. Personally, I've found Twitter to be a handy way to blast out quick messages to friends. It's led me to some new acquaintences who I think are less crazy than me. Most important, it keeps me off the streets and busy thinking about the 140-character writing metier. I don't know Salvatore, but I'll extend him the courtesy of assuming he is a decent guy who knows a lot about SEO and other stuff. But surely he's led a shelter... (more)

Day One Recap TechCrunch50

What a day. 1,700 people streamed into the San Francisco Design Center at 9 am on Monday morning to help launch the first group of 52 startups at TechCrunch50. Dozens more startups were camped out in the demopit. First, the bad news. The internet was down completely for half the day, and never really worked that well even when it was up. We had dedicated access for the launching companies, so the on stage demos went well. But the audience was left to rely on mobile access or none at all. And most of the demopit companies weren’t able to show their stuff. Needless to say we were pissed off. The vendor was fired and we brought someone new in, and by early evening everything was working well. Demopit companies, which rotate every day, were given another day to show off their products. The good news: Sixteen startups had a hell of a launch party in front of 1,700 atten... (more)

MySpace To Distribute Ashton Kutcher’s Blah Girls

When Ashton Kutcher launched his animated show Blah Girls at TechCrunch50 earlier this year, he ran into MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe in the hallways. DeWolfe expressed interest in the show. Fast forward two months, and Blah Girls now has a distribution deal with MySpaceTV, which had 51 million unique video streams in August (Comscore). The show features the adventures of three gossip queen teenagers - Tiffany, Britney and Krystle. They talk about pop culture issues of the day in episodes ranging from 45 seconds to two minutes. Season One is now up on MySpaceTV. Kutcher talked about syndicating the show to a cable television network at TechCrunch50. We assume those negotiations are still up in the air.

Research Confirms Twitter Is Bulls**t

A recent study confirms it: Twitter is the biggest BS of recent years, hyped by the mai stream media but no one understands why they are hyping it. Like Larry King of CNN. This man never touched a computer keyboard, has never seen a web page and yet he plugs his Twitter page every night at 9 PM. HubSpot released its June 2009 State of the Twittersphere (http://bit.ly/SOTblog0609) (Twitter hashtag: #SOTwitter) report, analyzing data from more than 4.5 million Twitter accounts over a nine month period to measure Twitter growth and report statistics on tweets, the Twitter user base and user geography. The study finds that despite obvious growth in the number of Twitter accounts, over nine percent of Twitter users are inactive. While the Wall Street Journal reports that the number of Twitter accounts has grown to 32.1 million from 1.6 million a year ago, the HubSpot State ... (more)

Will Social Networks Lead to a Community Cloud?

On Thursday 25th March 2010, people from an estimated 200 cities across the globe will come together to celebrate and support the second Global Twestival. Defined by Twitter as ‘a way to take part in a global event that transforms lives’, Twestival was created last year by London based Amanda Rose, an events-minded entrepreneur, who believed that Twitter’s users could be brought together for the common good. Ms Rose’s creation resulted in a series of worldwide off line events – from concerts to knitting groups – that raised over $250,000 for the chosen beneficiary - Global Twestival - and brought worldwide public awareness to the global water crisis and the devastating fact that over 1 billion people lack access to clean water. This year’s Global Twestival looks set to repeat last year’s achievements, at the time of writing a shade over $52,000 had been donated, w... (more)
