Twitter Blog: Twitter for iPhone

leave a comment

Pretty cool feature on the new Twitter for iPhone.

Something worth noting is that you don’t need a Twitter account to enjoy this application. Browsing trends, reading Top Tweets, finding popular users, and checking out public tweets geographically nearby are all possible immediately upon download.

No account necessary to enjoy Tweetie, er… Twitter for iPhone and iPod Touch. Sweet!

I admit it, I’m really disappointed that this didn’t ship as a Universal iPad/iPhone app. Sucks…

Unfathomable Loss, Incomprehensible Goon—Part 2

leave a comment

Lisa Belkin, from the NY Times Motherload blog on the Internet “scaffolding” that @military_mom was reaching out to for support:

For so many of us, sometimes without realizing it, that scaffolding is shored up by people we have never seen, but with whom we communicate regularly. I’d wager this is particularly true in the world of Mommy blogs, which were created by women precisely because they felt isolated in a new role.

Looked at through that lens, Ross’ tweets are not an example of the misuse of the internet, but rather of its potential and power. It’s the critics, not Ross, that show the technology’s dark side.

Spot on.

I’ve also noticed other, formerly legitimate Twitterers who have gone from infrequent but interesting updates to massive retweet ad spam.

Unfollowed immediately.
