New Twitter Homepage : Search


What a surprise to go on Twitter Homepage and to see that it was just updated a few minutes ago !!

And now it’s all about the SEARCH.

You can login on the top right-corner. Trending Topics are just below the large search box.

You can see this new homepage only if you are not connected to your account.

A new homepage that clearly shows what Twitter wants to do: Search. And a message sent to Google, saying: Hello!

Even if Twitter is more focused on Live Search among News.

Update: see official post on Twitter Blog


Tweetoclock: best time to contact a Twitter Member


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.

31 Twitter Logos Buttons and Icons

I just have 31 logos and buttons for Twitter designed.

These logos don’t come from another website.

I have them made by professional designers. You can see them on my french blog.

I hope you will like.

Twitter: A Good Thing or a Waste of 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….
