How To Watch The Sunrise On Twitter

How To Watch The Sunrise On Twitter
Watch the world wake up!

Twitter data analyst Simon Rogers used the geotags on all Tweets that mentioned the word “sunrise” to create this animated map of the sun’s first light — and people talking about it — moving across the world. Sure, it’s not quite as breathtaking as watching an actual sunrise (OK, not even close), but it’s still pretty cool. [The Guardian]

The other night, I received a phone call from my bank’s fraud department alerting me that some toolbag in Michigan tried to use my debit card information to purchase $400 worth of groceries. Since my information was obviously compromised, my trusty debit card was shut down immediately. It’s going to take a week for my new card to arrive, which means that until then, I’m left with just my credit card and the spare change in my junk drawer (cash is foreign to me).

The next morning, annoyed and in need of caffeine, I tweeted about my debit card misfortune and made a joke that I was considering selling my body for coffee. Minutes later, my friend (and fellow Tweeter), Brooke, sent me a “coffee” (a $5 Starbucks card e-gift) via Tweet A Coffee. Within minutes, I had a free grande skinny vanilla latte in my hands, courtesy of my dear friend and this genius Twitter exchange. Keep reading »

Meet Your Latest Social Media Obsession: Granny “Badass” Baddie Winkle, “Stealing Your Man Since 1928″



I don’t think it’s legal to adopt grandmas, but if it were, I’d want Baddie Winkle to join my family. She’s 86 years young, a great-grandmother, and one badass bitch. She only surfaced on the social media scene in the beginning of April, but it’s evident by her thousands of Twitter and Instagram followers that she’s allowed to be late to the party, because she IS the party.

14-Year-Old Girl Arrested After Cracking Terrorism Joke On Twitter

American Airlines Twitter

A 14-year-old Dutch girl found out the hard way that it’s not a good idea to tweet a “joke” about terrorism … when she got arrested after doing so. The teen, who went by “QueenDemetriax_” on Twitter and is apparently named Sarah, tweeted to American Airlines yesterday: “hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye.” Read more on Newser…

US Airways Twitter Account Shows Complaining Customer Exactly Where To Stick It (NSFW)

US Airways Tweeted A Photo Of A Woman With A Toy Airplane In Her Vagina

Well, this is one way to approach online customer service. Earlier today, a US Airways customer tweeted a complaint about a flight delay to the company’s official Twitter account. US Airways sent back a fairly standard response (90% of airline Twitter feeds are canned apologies tweeted at irate customers), but when the customer wasn’t satisfied, whoever is was running US Airway’s Twitter account got a little more…umm…creative. “We welcome your feedback,” they replied, and directed the customer to a link where they could file a formal complaint. Except the link didn’t lead to a customer feedback website, it led to a picture of a naked woman with a large model plane stuck in her vagina. For serious. The craziest part? US Airways left the tweet and image up for a FULL HOUR before removing it and posting this apology.

See the full image after the jump, but beware: it is VERY NSFW and will make your vagina sore just looking at it… Keep reading »

A New Study Implies Twitter Could Cause Your Divorce, But I'm Not Convinced

According to a new study published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, people who are very active on Twitter are more likely to be involved in intense confrontations in their relationships — the kind that are catalysts for things like cheating, breakups and divorce. At least, that’s what the evidence points to, but I’d take it with a grain of salt.

The study surveyed 581 Twitter users and measured their “active Twitter use” by asking them how frequently they log into the site and tweet, reply to tweets, use direct messaging, and scroll through their timeline. Participants were also asked if their Twitter use ever sparked conflict with current or former significant others. The more often a person was considered an active Twitter user, the more likely they were to have Twitter-related disagreements with their partner,”which then significantly predicted negative relationship outcomes such as cheating, breakup, and divorce.” Keep reading »
