  1. Future Historians Probably Won’t Understand Our Internet - The Atlantic

  4. Twython — Twython 3.1.2 documentation

    “Actively maintained, pure Python wrapper for the Twitter API. Supports both normal and streaming Twitter APIs” Probably more up to date than whatever I was using before. For future reference.

  5. Exquisite Tweets from @nraford

    “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by PowerPoints, starving hysterical for content…” Noah Radford spent two hours recasting ‘Howl’ over Twitter. (originally collected by @debcha)

  6. Met Police encourages Twitter pile-ons (with images, tweets) · anyabike · Storify

    Interesting, in an unpleasant way, to see how Twitter etiquette, and tone of voice, and the blurry lines between personal / professional Twitter accounts make this kind of thing get a bit horrible. (via @mildlydiverting)

  7. How I Built Emojitracker — Medium

    Brilliant write-up of the difficulties in developing what at first glance looks like a very simple site. Also, makes me pleased Twelescreen is simpler and less popular. (via Waxy)

    Nicely done, and pretty sobering. (via @annegalloway)

  9. Exquisite Tweets from @pretendoffice, @rooreynolds

  11. ifttt / Log tweets to a Dropbox file

    Nice idea for making a backup of your tweets and @replies. (via Stellar)

  12. Issue #3057: bootstrap-dropdown.js clearMenus() needs ; at the end · twitter/bootstrap

    Long, long discussion over whether to use a semi-colon or not. Saved to show non-coders how important the smallest details can be. And, also, USE SEMI-COLONS, WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!

  13. Twitter Bootstrap Generator

    Enter colour, font options etc and it generates a compiled CSS file to use with the Twitter Bootstrap framework thing. (via Brett Terpstra)

  14. Bootstrap, from Twitter

    Twitter’s CSS/HTML frameworky thing, which I keep forgetting about.

  16. Sycorax: Bring Fictional Characters to Life on Twitter

    “Sycorax is a Twitter client, written in Python, that choreographs the online behavior of fictional characters.” Very nice. Introduces slight randomness, characters interacting, etc. (via Infovore)

  17. Wstonesoxfordst · Storify

    The collected tweets of @wstonesoxfordst. ‘The Bookshop of Babel’ was quite fun.

  18. FRSTEE the Twitter Snowman

  19. Why Twitter’s Oral Culture Irritates Bill Keller (and why this is an important issue) | technosociology

  20. Twitpic, Twitter, Lockerz, YFrog, Mobypic – good or bad? | Jon Boyes - Photographer - blog

  21. Twitter Ye Not – why this geek went back to the real world | Sarah Angliss

  22. Infovore » Where’s @towerbridge?

    Aside from anything else: Twitter appear to have handed one person’s account over to someone else, and all the original tweets have been deleted. How safe does your account feel now?

  23. Difference between geo and coordinates in status - Twitter Development Talk | Google Groups

    Coordinates vs geo vs place in the Twitter API. It’s not good when you have to read email threads to work out how to use a company’s API.

  24. [RS] Re-Sweet: @samuelpepys -

    Odd but nice: two guys who sing tweets have, at someone’s request, sung one of @samuelpepys’ tweets. (via @lili_bird)

  25. Exquisite Tweets from @kaygeeuk, @Danny_Saxby, @m1ndy9876, @MissEllieMae, @ARRJAYKAY, @BenDylan, @kevmcveigh, @squashypigeon, @sliderulesyou, @oliverburkeman

    Highly edited (none of the retweets for a start) version of the “Sky reporters offered protestors £25 to throw bricks” rumour spreading on Twitter, curated by me.

  26. Twitter / alex butterworth: For the next ten weeks I w …

    “For the next ten weeks I will be tweeting the events of the Commune through the voices of the participants.” Lovely idea, seems a bit hard to follow what’s actually happening, or maybe I’ve missed the point.

  27. Snap Bird - search twitter’s history

    Lets you search your Twitter friends’ tweets, or a specific person’s tweets (and more), further back than 10 days (unlike official Twitter search). (via Haddock)

  29. Dancarroll / django-activitysync / source – Bitbucket

    Django app for aggregating activity from different services, currently Twitter, Google Reader and Reddit.

  30. IS Parade

  31. Exquisite Tweets from @candicecbailey…

    Whoops! One careless word and suddenly people think there’s a shooting in Oxford Circus. @candicecbailey appears to have deleted her original tweet now, although it’s not really her fault. (via @abscond)

    Really handy way of being able to point at an entire Twitter conversation, or a hand-curated selection of tweets, from James Wheare.

    How to fix the out-of-date django-syncr to work with Twitter’s OAuth.

    Looks fascinating - a PHP/MySQL project you can install which then grabs your Twitter and Facebook network info and processes and graphs it al. (via Preoccupations)

  35. How do sites prevent vanity URLs from colliding with future features? - Quora

    Just for the list of suggested blacklist terms that shouldn’t be allowed for usernames, so as to avoid future URL conflicts.

  36. Bkkeepr | Track your reading and bookmark on the go

    I either didn’t know James Bridle had done this or I’d forgotten. Bad of me either way. It’s very nice. A bit like LibraryThing, but you add/track/bookmark your reading via Twitter.

  37. Philgyford’s mytweets at master - GitHub

    I updated Simon Willison’s “Script for saving a JSON archive of your tweets”, which Blech and others have added to since, to use OAuth.

  38. Why trust Facebook with the future’s past? — Scott Rosenberg’s Wordyard

    Twitter and Facebook are storing what will be our history, but it’s not accessible. (Which is why I have my own public archive of my Twitters, and rarely use Facebook.) (via Preoccupations)

  39. Setting Up Twitter Bots with OAuth | maSnun’s logs

    Least baffling description I’ve read. Phew. (via Infovore)

  40. The Twitter Times: philgyford

    Similar to Paper.li, things friends have linked to on Twitter. But… again, it assumes I’m more interested in the articles than what my friends say about them, the context. At least article text is inline, so quick to read.

  41. The Twitter Phil Gyford Daily (Paper.li)

    Paper.li is very interesting but… suffers from every problem I wrote about re finishability, readability, friction… I don’t want to read any of it. It also obscures the context (the tweets).

  42. Crowd-sourcing the office stereo, using Twitter and Spotify

    Python script to enable sending Spotify URLs @ a Twitter account which then queue and play, and also scrobble to Last.fm.

  43. Twitterature: When Moby Dick Became The Fail Whale « Black Clock

    I took part in an online chat thing about Twitter literature a while back, mainly because of @samuelpepys, but I also mentioned E4’s Misfits.

  44. Copyright is hard on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Very simple way to get a file of all your Twitter tweets, friends, etc.

  46. The Stars Look Down – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report

    I’m not hugely bothered whether Favrd exists or not, but I like Dean Allen’s comment here, especially the first major paragraph. (via Daring Fireball)
