It’s not an obvious leap to take a Twitter account and turn it into a sitcom, but it has been done… and it’s going to be done again, sort of, despite the less-than-stellar results the first time around.
It appears as though Twitter has ignored request from the Boston Police Department and the Suffolk Massachusetts District Attorney’s office that a subpoena for user information be kept under wraps.
You can put a value on almost anything these days, even something as intangible as your Klout score.
Did you know that every 60 seconds Twitter sees (on average) more than 98,000 tweets? And that over 320 new users register on the network each and every minute?
Impressive as that data might seem, Twitter’s numbers are actually pretty slight compared to other internet powerhouses such as Google, Facebook and Skype. Want to blow your mind?

Photos are expanded, videos are displayed and even links to text articles are expanded into small snippets of the original source. I worry that this is going to take its toll and put pressure on services like Tumblr.

We’ve heard it before: 2009 was a watershed year for Twitter. Ashton Kutcher raced CNN to a million followers, Oprah signed up, and the Iranian protests used Twitter extensively that year. But how did the US react to this new “micro-blogging” network at the time?
Joe Lieberman is heading up a movement in the US Congress that would like to see Twitter censor the Taliban’s tweets, in order to “eliminate violent Islamist extremism propaganda” on social media.
