Hacked and Hijacked! What's Next When Your Facebook/Twitter Is Hacked

Symptom: Maybe your Twitter or Facebook friends have gotten viciously spammed with fake offers for a free iPad, or a link to a fake app -- from your profile. Or, maybe you've discover posts on your profile that you never wrote, often with links leading to websites, apps or coupons. You may discover personal messages sent to friends that you didn't write, perhaps asking them to wire money. Or,...

Following the Academy Awards Online: Our Favorite Voices Chime in on Oscar Night

What's the point of watching The Oscars if you can't have the entire Internet screaming in your eyes at the same time? The pomp, the glitz, the gladhanding and the empty ceremony of the biggest awards show of the year all demand collective commentary. For the Academy Awards, we like to grab a cheap bottle of cava, don our finest sweatpants, and hop on the Web for an evening of glamour that...

New York Fashion Week on Twitter: Take Your Seat in the Digital Front Row

Watching events unfold Twitter is no longer just an interesting pastime, but a crucial way to keep abreast of cultural, political or sports-oriented happenings. We broke down the best accounts to stalk for the Super Bowl -- but, in many ways, that's a piece of cake. The event, pre- and post-game, lasts half of a day, has one location, and features two discernible sides. New York Fashion Week,...

Super Bowl XLV on Twitter: Who to Follow

Super Bowl XLV presents a particularly intriguing juxtaposition of established tradition and revolutionary technology. The Steelers and Packers represent perhaps the two most storied franchises in NFL history, with each carrying a lunch-pail reputation as a blue-collar, working-class organization. Now, 21st-century tech is allowing unprecedented Super Bowl access to those timeless teams' players,...

Anonymous and Tunisia: A New Cyber Warfare?

Tunisia's 'Jasmine Revolution' ignited on December 17th, when a street vendor named Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire in front of a local police station. The demonstration struck a chord within millions of Tunisians -- many of whom, like Bouazizi, had fallen on hard times, due to the country's stagnant labor market, skyrocketing food prices and high-level political corruption. Within days,...

Indie Retailer Moxsie Lets Twitter Fans Be the Buyer (And Switched Readers Score, Too!)

Don't call it crowd-sourcing. It isn't quite that. It's not exactly social networking either, though the idea behind Moxsie's newest initiative does harness the large-scale power of Twitter and the populace voting capacity of groupthink. Moxsie, the Web retailer just shy of a two-year anniversary, features what CEO Jon Fahrner calls "under-sold, cutting edge" designers, looking for a Web space to...

The Process: Michael Surtees Reconsiders the Weather (App)

We're thrilled to announce a new video series that examines the modern creative process employed by designers, writers, typographers, artists and more. We wanted to explore how people work today, shuffling between sketching by hand and testing on tablets -- seamlessly moving between the digital and analog. In each episode, we'll give each subject a unique challenge, and explore how they...

The Changing, Web-Connected World of Politics, And How You Can Get Involved

Social networking gives us a cross-section of virtually every political opinion known to man. Are there racists and bigots? Of course. Tree-huggers and granola-munchers? Absolutely. And that's the magic. They may not subscribe to the same worldview or all check the same box every November, but the political masses are here, online, making their presence known. What we have before us is, for...

Twitter iPad App Review: Multi-Panels and Multi-Functions

The new official Twitter client for the iPad just landed this week, and it's offering some of the most interesting mobile app design ideas we've seen this year. The iPad offers more screen space than cellphones, and the Twitter team fortunately didn't simply port over a bigger version of the wildly popular (and well-made) official app for the iPhone. We spent some time with the app, so head after...

How Twitter Lists Can Help Manage the Social Media Flood

Twitter initially evoked public scrutiny, and boisterous media inanity, as a supposedly trivial, narcissistic and whimsical Web oddity. Last spring, however, the site announced its membership had eclipsed 100 million users, with an astonishing 300,000 new arrivals every day. That success can largely be attributed to the creation of a variety of features -- particularly the monumental and overdue...

The Best Android Twitter Apps

It's no secret that the Android Market is considerably smaller than Apple's App Store, but this shouldn't get Android users down when searching for the Twitter app that will maximize their micro-blogging. There are more than enough high-quality Twitter apps available in the Market, and, as Android continues to grow, the offerings will only get better. Here's a list of some apps that let us tweet...

Best Twitter Apps for iPhone

During the iPhone's nascent stages, users had limited choices when it came to Twitter applications. But now, there are myriad services that allow you to blast 140-character tweets, and keep up with your buddies, too. So now, the problem is weeding out the pretenders from the contenders – not that we're complaining. So to help you decide which app is best for you, we're offering a brief...

Twitter Unveils Official iPhone App, Switched Goes Hands On

Searching the iPhone app store for "Twitter" turns up plenty of apps, but not one named "Twitter." In fact there was no such thing as an official Twitter app for the iPhone, until today. For newcomers to the microblogging service, this caused a bit of confusion, so Twitter decided it was time to get some officially sanctioned apps out -- including one for the iPhone. Smartly, instead of starting...

The Best Twitter Apps for BlackBerry

Twitter's 140-character format -- and the tendency of users to follow hundreds, if not thousands, of incessant linkers and tweeters -- provides an almost perfect mobile means of instant communication and interaction. Together, the App World and the Web currently offer a variety of free apps allowing BlackBerry tweeps to keep a constant eye on their feeds and friends, with each selection offering...

Top 5 Comedians Who Tweet (and 5 Who Should)

It's a happy coincidence that Twitter's 140-character limit happens to be the perfect format for dishing one-liners, wry observations, and, of course, those always satisfying X-rated tirades. Thus, it's an ideal way for comedians to try out new material and broaden their fan bases, and a never-ending source of free content for comedy fans -- a win-win for everyone. To share the wealth with our...
