TwitterOn Wednesday the social media giant Twitter, launched “Twitter Alerts”. When news breaks about a safety concern or a weather related emergency, a Twitter Alert will pop up in your feed from the appropriate organization handling the information during the emergency.

The Twitter Alerts program is available to any organization that will be providing the critical information to the public; these organizations can be local, national or international. Currently, Twitter has more than 100 government agencies that are enrolled in this program. If you believe your agency should be enrolled in the program, fill out their enrollment form.

Believe it or not, Twitter has already proven to come in handy during times of disaster. FEMA used Twitter as a way to communicate critical information for those in the path of Hurricane Sandy. And the Boston Police Department used Twitter to …

Google temporarily halts Realtime search

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2011

You might have noticed that Google had no tweets in their Google search results yesterday. That is because the company has temporarily suspended the Realtime search feature, as part of its Google+ launch. Google explained that it needs time to integrate Google+ within its social network-based search tool.

And their deal with Twitter has expired. While Google will not have access to this special feed from Twitter, information on Twitter that’s publicly available to their crawlers will still be searchable and discoverable on Google.

Twitter may unveil image service on Tuesday

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on May 30th, 2011

According to a rumor, Twitter will be launching its own image service, which will be an equivalent to Lockerz, TwitPic, Yfrog and other services that are commonly used. It could arrive as soon as tomorrow. We don’t know yet what if any differences we can expect over those other services.

This might be all about revenue. Twitter encourages promoted tweets but has little direct monetization of its own. A self-run image service could change that by launching ads with the million of images shared every day. Best of all this wouldn’t disrupt users’ feeds.

Twitter gets more secure with HTTPS

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2011

Twitter has just announced that they will be offering an optional “always on” HTTPS setting to its users. So if you use Twitter on unsecured internet connections like free public WiFi and are worried about people stealing your login details, you should be enabling the option on your Twitter settings page.

Enabling the HTTPS setting doesn’t force mobile browsers, so if you’re using the Twitter website on your phone, go to https://mobile.twitter.com/ for now. Also if you use a third-party client, check the settings to sure that it offers HTTPS.

Twitter chief says there will be no self-branded smartphone

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2011

Facebook has some smartphones, so you might think that Twitter would jump on the wagon, but no. Not gonna happen. During a keynote speech at MWC, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo dispelled any notions that the company is working on Twitter-branded cell phone. Even though he says that 40 percent of all tweets originate from cell phones.

The CEO said that Android phones currently allow users to quickly send a photo they took to their Twitter followers and he’d like to see more of the same in other platforms. He’d also like more single sign-on experiences and more apps that allow tweeting directly without going to another app. Hey, we’d all like that.

Tweeting using Morse code

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2011

Why tweet with your phone or keyboard when you can tweet like the old days using morse code. That’s right, you can use a telegraph machine. joester5 on Twitter managed to create just that. A telegraph machine for Twitter, using a telegraph machine he bought on eBay.

It took some open source software, a twitter account, an arduino micro-controller, and a telegraph machine. You’ll have to learn Morse code however. At least you won’t have to go to the telegraph office to pick up tweets from this guy.

Eat and Tweet with the new Samsung WiFi-enabled RF4289 fridge

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2011

Samsung’s new RF3289 fridge allows users to access Pandora or even tweet while finding a snack. The fridge is the first of its kind to feature integrated WiFi that will let you view Google calendars, check the weather, download recipes from Epicurious, or leave digital reminders and notes. If there is such a thing as being too connected, this right here may be it. I’m surprised it doesn’t tell your Facebook friends what you are eating.

The fridge has an 8-inch LCD touchscreen as well as a Twin Cooling Plus System that keeps perishable produce fresher for longer. The RSG309 and RF4289 models also provide plenty of storage space. Both will be available in Canada later this year.

17-year old boy and Japanese developer linked to Twitter security flaw

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on September 22nd, 2010

A 17-year old boy from Australia claims to be responsible for that Twitter security flaw yesterday. He might have accidentally set the whole thing off. According to reports, he might have exposed the security flaw by tweeting a piece of code related to the onMouseOver JavaScript function that caused a pop-up to appear when a user moved his mouse over the message.

The code was quickly modified to perform all kinds of unsavory tasks, some malicious. He claims that he modified the idea from another user (a Japanese developer) who used the code to make his tweets colored. Twitter had been notified of the flaw before, and it was patched, but a recent update caused the flaw to rear it’s head again.
