    [Twitter] Guess Who is Back on Foursquare
    I’ll bet those Foursquare users are also active tweeters, only because when I created a new account a few days ago and was prompted to select friends to share my check-ins with, there were about 50 Facebook friends with Foursquare accounts but a whopping 500 Twitter friends with the accounts. Citing privacy concerns and not wanting strangers to know where I was every moment I checked in to a location, I deleted my Foursquare account 14 months ago. Was the second camp right?

    [Twitter] Fight U.S. Government Internet Censorship
    If you want to protect free speech and innovation, and keep services open with names such as Twitter and Facebook, you need to ask your elected officials in Washington to oppose the PIPA and SOPA bills. The video above discusses the U.S. Senate version of the PROTECT IP Act , but the House bill, the Stop Online Piracy Act , is worse. If passed by Congress, the government will receive new powers to block Americans’ access to websites that corporations don’t like.
