  • What is a Twitterstorm

    The Twitterstorm is a description of an event where hundreds of 140 character messages are sent at the same time.

  • People appreciate video of an event for the second time

  • Twittervox, flatlisters and a possible trip to Paris

    In today’s Twittervox episode we had Nik Butler talking about his idea of the flatlister.
