Twitter Quietly Rolls Out Changes To It’s Interface On “Following” and “Followers”.

twitter interface

In the wake of Facebook changing its privacy policy, Twitter has quietly rolled out changes to its user interface on the “Following” and “Followers” page. The changes are supposed to make it easier to manage who you follow and to take actions, such as @replying or direct messaging; however, only time will tell. In addition, we all know how resistant people can be with change.

Perez Hilton vs. Will.I.AM… Was There A Fight???



UPDATE: PEREZ’s version of the story on TMZ

I was a little more than upset when I woke up this morning and read all the stories about Perez Hilton claiming that Will.I.AM and his security beat him up while in Toronto. Of all people, why would Perez start a smear campaign about Will.I.AM? This guy is a great guy who has managed to stay clean and does not invite the drama that Perez Hilton is throwing his way. There are many celebrities that take part in this kind of foolishness and who welcome it, so why would Perez mess with Will.I.AM… Maybe I am biased as I love Will.I.AM. I love his quirkiness and not to mention I have watched him go from being a dancer back in my day to becoming a great producer and artist. He is also becoming a great DJ. I know many of you do not get this guy, but I do. In fact he reminds me allot of myself… quirky, misunderstood, but more importantly, not afraid to be true to him no matter what people think.

I am not mad at that damn HATER Perez Hilton, but I am very disappointed that he doesn’t know how to handle himself. I know this guy is all about scandal, but are you that desperate for scandal and to add to the millions of dollars you already make by creating drama with Will.I.AM? Come on…

Perez claims via his Twitter site that he needed help because he had been assaulted by Will.I.AM and his security guards at the after party for the Much Music Video at the Soho Metropolitan Hotel in Toronto. He claims that he was bleeding, but yet Twitters the story as opposed to immediately calling the police. Apparently, there was no need to ass his fans were calling the Toronto police from as far as China to report what Perez was claiming on his Twitter page. Why are people so fascinated by this guy? I understand that scandal sells, but he is mean, nasty and clearly unhappy with himself. Most people that have that much to say or that much hate towards others are.

Will.I.AM explains the story in two videos…

HBO’s True Blood Recap: Episode 1, Season 2


Wow! It is great to see that HBO’s True Blood has so many fans now. The premier of season two has generated allot of Buzz. So many people are talking about the second seasons first episode that True Blood made Twitter’s top 10 list of the most talked about topics the following day. Depending on your time zone, True Blood actually debut right as the NBA Play-offs were ending. It would be really interesting to see how many viewers tuned out to start watching True Blood.

I do not remember there being this much buzz about season one, but I am glad to see that so many people are talking about season two. Aside from America’s new obsession with Vampires, True Blood is truly a great show. For those that missed season one, I hope that you are able to catch on. A couple of weeks ago I posted a great recap video, “Taste of True Blood” by the show’s creator, Alan Ball. The summary is great and it allows fans a opportunity to quickly learn about what happened in season one. For those living under a rock who may have missed the first episode of season two, the Los Angeles Times posted a superb recap. Please make sure to read it and watch the next episode.

Kanye West Talks About His Ongoing Battle With Twitter.


I have a take it or leave it opinion about Kanye West. I don’t know the guy personally, so I am in no real position to say anything bad about him. However, his comment about Twitter definitely has me leaning towards the “take it” side of Kanye. If nothing else I have always and will continue to admire his individuality and fearlessness in going against what is popular and doing what he wants to do. With that said, in reading his latest blog about Twitter, I really felt that he took the words right out of my mouth.

As you can see, I do have a twitter account, but I rarely post updates. To be quite frank, I personally do not understand the need to share so much and I do not understand where many Twitters, namely celebrities find the time to tweet their every move. I understand that Twitter is first and foremost a marketing tool, but I really don’t get it. I have tried to understand it and I do see the marketing value, but WHY does someone need to know your every move? Are you really connecting to fellow Twitters or Fans or simply “OVERSHARING?”

Check out what Kanye had to say. Do you agree or disagree?

So, You Don’t Get Twitter… 60% Of You May Be Twitter Quitters


According to a Neilsen Report released today, a full 60% of Twitter users who sign up fail to return to the website the following month. From February 2008 to February 2009 Twitter growth was a reportedly 1382% surpassing all other social networking websites including MySpace. Although it seems that many people are Twittering, Twitter faces an uphill battle in making sure new users are enticed to return and continue using the service. Based on my own experience, I personally do not get the need for people to share so much. Talk about Exposed To LIFE TMI… “Too Much Information!”
