Tweet From The Grave!

A new service set to launch soon will make it possible to continue tweeting after your death. Created by a Swedish design student, “WebWill” allows users of Twitter, Facebook and Myspace to appoint a contact who will alert the networking sites of your untimely demise so that they can then update your services. Those services can include “a blog post or spooky email to a list of friends.” WebWill also allows profiles to be handed over to a friend or family member who can do with them whatever you would have wished. Personally, I’d like for all my web profiles to haunt the profiles and sites of anyone who has ever left an inflammatory comment on any of my blog posts, as well as play John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever” every time someone clicks on them. What would you like for your lasting web message from the dead to be? [via Newslite] Keep reading »

Twitter Tirades: Stars — They Tweet Like Us!

Reading celebrity Twitters is like flipping to US Weekly‘s “They’re Just Like Us!” section. They whine about bad TV, do battle with technology, and wonder what other people think of them. This week, Nicole Richie’s Blackberry broke, John Mayer was busy, James Franco saw “Star Trek”, Samantha Ronson watched MTV, Karl Lagerfeld tried to make us feel better about buying his clothes, and Mindy Kaling may or may not have gone to Paris for a boob job.

    No Time For Real Online Dating? Find A Mate In 140 Characters Or Less

    While there are plenty of Twitter haters, we’re fans of the site. Our lives are busy, and it’s easier to communicate with others on our own terms than keep in touch them all via email, or, heaven forbid, in real life. Plus, Twitter brings out the pithy in people; they have to show they’re smart and clever — even with a 140-character constraint.

    Over the past few months, we’ve been online dating but have found that reading guy’s profiles can be a bit of a time-suck — a lot of them are long-winded. Yes, we’d like to know whether we might be a match, but we’d also like to catch up on “The Real Housewives of New York” episodes we missed. So, we’re all for Radaroo, a free online dating system that uses Twitter to pair up people. While there aren’t many users yet, we hope Radaroo takes off. It could be like speed dating for witty writer-types! [Radaroo via Inventor Spot] Keep reading »

Enter Mike Massimino—the Armstrong of the digital age. Massimino sent the first tweet from space yesterday at 4:30 p.m. Check it out after the jump.

    Can You Tweet A Secret?

    If you’re to believe the hype, Twitter can help you with everything from finding a job to keeping abreast of surprise sample sales. Now, Twitter can even assist you in unloading the burden of your deepest secrets. Secret Tweet, the latest “craze within a craze,” is a cyber-confessional where users can anonymously post secrets, from the hilarious and weird to the poignant and creepy. If you think this sounds exactly like PostSecret, the site that skyrocketed to Internet popularity shortly after it was launched in 2007, you’re wrong. See, PostSecret is all about the postcard, the detail of the artwork, and Secret Tweet is — well, it’s about 134 characters or less (yes, even fewer than normal tweets). Secret Tweet was started by 21-year-old graphic designer Kevin Smith as a way for him and his friends to “amuse themselves.” Eve though he doesn’t make a profit off it, he says he’ll continue the project as long as he finds “personal happiness.” After the jump, a few of the Secret Tweets that amuse Kevin and make him personally happy.
