It hasn’t made it to the news yet but it will be shortly. Bird Flu is alive and well on one of my favorite social networking sites Twitter. I’m never sure when I click on the Twitter bookmark whether its on safari or on my iPod touch if I will get either nothing or the dreaded “Something is Technically Wrong” message which is the new blue screen of death for a lot of users out there.  Macs aren’t immune to this one either…Sorry.

Hopefully the folks at twitter will either be bought out by google so they will have the server space or someone will support them.  With no ads anywhere on twitter where are they getting their funding anywho?  I have no idea.  

If this doesn’t end soon people will most likely move on and find something else that someone is currently developing now.  I guess the question I ask myself is, 10 years down the road will I care how many followers I have and how many updates I’ve done.  Does twitter even exist 10 years down the road?  Am I said when I see that I have over 1 million updates?  At my funeral will they just show my life blog via twitter?  It really is like a journal updated constantly.  Although most argue it’s an enormous waist of time it is pretty unique in how you can connect and network with others.

 

With all that said, Twitter….. GET WELL SOON.  I will be bringing some balloons and chicken noodle soup.

This site is brilliant. You choose your keyword such as 3amjosh. If its available you then control it. Someone can send a text that says 3amjosh to 41411 and it will send them back a text with whatever message I choose. Advertising and getting alerts out is quite easy and quick with this. They have some other unique tools that you can use to send out group messages to your subscribers and you can update your response from your cellphone if something were to change. Pretty brilliant especially paired with a nice shirt from Reactee.com
