Twitter Photo-Sharing Service – Bad for Twitpic!

No doubt you would have heard by now that Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo is announcing the launch of a photo-sharing service this week, we first heard it was a rumour from Techcrunch however since then allthingsd.com confirmed that the image sharing service is going to be announced on Wednesday at All Things D’s D9 California Conference. I hadn’t seen this report myself until I asked Robert Scoble about it yesterday and he told me where it had been confirmed so it must be true, unless All things D are lying. Ev said earlier today … So who knows what the […]

You don’t care about your Klout score until its GONE!

What is Judgement Day in the Rapture?  The apparent meaning is that all True believers will be returned to heaven. ( Supposedly billions raptured.)  So if you are not a true believer […]
