Tweetoclock is a website that gives you the perfect day and time in a week to contact a Twitter Member.
On Tweetoclock you simply enter the twitter username and the website provides you the perfect time to contact your Twitter God or a chance to being read by him. Tweetoclock is based on historical Twitter time presence.
Hours are in GMT format (Greenwich mean Time), so for Montreal or New Yorkyou do GMT-5, for France GMT +1, for San Francisco GMT -8.
For example, to contact me (see above) best hour is friday at 1AM GMT or Thursday at 9:00 PM Montreal Hour.
Nice job from french man Malaiac who just launched a nice Directory WordPress plugin for Worpress 2.7 + :codenameZelist.
I was waiting exactly this kind of plugin for a while !! (directory wp plugins already exist but they are not very cool. I hope Malaiac will give us Zeplugin and will be able to make it happen with time) !
Hugh MacLeod has decided to close his own account of Twitter, and apparently that’s a pretty big deal — because strangely, his move seems to push the debate about Twitter in the U.S. blogosphere.
His decision revived the debate.
Below is a comic’s version of Hugh:
Twitter: Angel or Devil?
All this is very similar to Facebook: we like it, we don’t like it, we like it again, now we don’t like it -)
Personally, I Twit on occasion. I am sometimes tempted to say it was a waste of time, especially if I begin to really love all of this. At other times, I like it and I send some twitts. These are facts to prove that I exist.
Becoming hooked on Twitter is so easy. You read someone’s post and find that he wants to share his time with his “followers.” Then someone responds, another person responds to that, then another person, and it just continues… a person can quickly be taken at his own game and spend hours at this. At its most insane, Twitter may resemble Casino Blogger. But because there is no money to deal with, the only bargaining chip is to find a scoop or learn something new about a blogger we know well.
But Twitter isn’t a void. It’s a coffee shop. On Friday night, for example.
Or twitter is perfect for news monitoring.
Sometimes I love it. Sometimes I say to myself, “give me back these 20 minutes of my life”. But because I tend to optimize my time behind the computer, it is clear that I will not ever become addicted to Twitter.
It is a real love-hate relationship.
It is best, therefore, to use Twitter with restraint and intelligence.
At least I think Twitter has minimal interest for bloggers, unlike Facebook….
It is the “Anti-Buzz” that has become the Buzz in France: Nicolas Princen, a 24-year-old graduate of HEC and the Ecole Normale, has been appointed by the Elysée to make sure he gathers everything that is said about French President Nicolas Sarkozy on the Web.
In other words, Princen will do some News Monitoring and will decide whether the Buzz on Nicolas Sarkozy is either good or bad.
Also, it is understood that if a blogger says something against the president, an attack to justice will follow. Wow. It’s another step towards the death of Web 2.0 and blogs on celebrities.
Bloggers, it is time for you to recycle somewhere else: soon you will not be able to say anything without fear of prosecution. Nicolas Princen will sue all blogs and online media that releases false rumors about Nicolas Sarkozy.
By “attacking,” it is not yet clear whether this includes formal notice or a direct summons to court.
Some people took this news with humor by creating a page on Facebook, declaring that Nicolas Princen is “sexy”. The page already has almost 200 members.
Princen, definitely a name to remember. A future Loic Le Meur, perhaps? (The story did not say whether Nicolas Princen planned to hire someone to monitor everything that is said on the Web about himself… ; -)
After 1 month of full blogging for this new Blog, Abry.biz is now receiving about 75,000 page views for one month (and 50,000 unique visitors).
So I am starting now to sell advertising spaces at very small prices. These prices should increase in the next months with the growing audience, so consider to advertise right now at frozen prices for 4 months!
A big banner 728 x 90 on the top, just above the content (where the current 728 x 90 adsense banner is located) : $60 for 1 month.
A 200 x 150 on top right sidebar (between the google search form and “Popular Articles”): $20 per month
A 200 x 150 on bottom right sidebar (where the entrecard banner is located): $10 per month
For other type of advertsing, please contact me at vincentabry @ gmail.com
A new scandal is just spreading on the World Web and with the peak of weblogs, news are coming to everybody at an exponential speed.
And guess what : Google loves these kind of requests about Buzz, especially in a situation like this one. Laure Manaudou, a french top swimmer very famous in France. Laure Manaudou’s stolen nude pics are everywhere on the web. Photos come from a cell phone video. Luca Marin, ex boyfriend of Manaudou says it’s not him who put pictures on the web even if we know that….ok, you see.
Several french weblogs played the game: Chauffeur de Buzz, whose funny video on Youtube is one of the most viewed (congrats Otto, who is a friend of mine)… and now Vincent Abry (hum? what?!).
If we compare the Buzz with Google Trends between Laure Manaudou and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, we can see Manaudou’s nude photos is HUGE.
But Laure Manaudou and her lawyers have already stop the Buzz : they said they are going to take legal actions on all blogs that post the nude pics of Manaudou.
In a couple of hours, most of the pics have disappeared of the french blogosphere!!
So we know that the Sarkozy Bruni Buzz will be the winner with time because a wedding is coming soon.
However Manoudou sexy nude pics are still sent by email and it’s not very hard to still find them on the non-french web.
And Yes I saw the pictures, they are beautiful. I know it is very hard for Laure and it is a very bad timing, but like all the Buzz, Time will erase them from people’s mind.
To conclude, let’s watch a video dedicated to Manaudou, this big french champion:
