Twitter’s hashtag feature is trending in real life. Banter Banner’s Hashtag Banner lets you make a custom hashtagged message. It won’t make your room or office easier to find, but it will make you more visible.
The world has certainly changed over the last few decades. It used to be the case that parents had to manually check if their babies had wet their diaper. Not anymore. Now there is a device that will tell you when your child needs to be changed.
If you’ve ever met someone at a party or meeting and wanted to exchange social networking information, you know it can be kind of a pain. Sure, you can hand them a business card – even one with a QR code on it – but that exchange of info still isn’t instantaneous, and requires the other party to follow up later.
Remember the Socialmatic camera concept by ADR-Studio? It’s been almost a year since they unveiled the instant camera basically takes Instagram to a whole new level. It took a while, but they’re going ahead with production for the Socialmatic, which is expected to launch early next year.

Love it or hate it, it looks like Twitter’s Vine has managed to attract a pretty solid following ever since its launch. Time will tell if it’ll become as big of a fixture in the social media sphere as Instagram, but for now, it’s sure getting a lot of attention – particularly because people like Dawn Siff are finding unusual and creative ways to use the platform.
While there have been many different apps that have tried to be what Instagram is to photos but for videos, this new one is backed by Twitter, making it immediately interesting to the Twitterati.

So it’s official: Prince William and Kate are having a baby. To some, it’s great news. To the curious, it’s information worth knowing. To the vast population, it’s merely news that doesn’t have anything to do with them.
A baby girl named Hashtag. A fox that can answer calls and send text messages. And now birds that tweet? Now I’ve seen everything.
Of course, these birds were only able to do so with the help of humans.
Twitter is probably the most up-to-date source of both the most useless as well as the important issues of the day; it’s like a thousand free radio stations where some broadcast nothing but ads while the rest have schizophrenic DJs and reporters.
The first act of cruelty that some parents inflict on their children is giving them weird names or names that they can never live down. For example, magician Penn Jillette named his daughter Moxie Crimefighter. There’s also that actor, Jason Lee, who named his son Pilot Inspektor.
I’ve always thought one the most interesting landmarks in England was the London Eye. I would call it a ferris wheel, as I think most people from the US would, but it’s simply known as the Eye in the UK.
For the past few months, a lot of advertising and marketing campaigns have been targeting vending machines. There’s Coca-Cola’s vending machine that gave away free soda for a hug, and the Rugbeer vending machinethat needed to be tackled before it dispensed any beer.
Social media is everywhere these days. You can’t watch a TV program, enter a store or pass a billboard without being asked to “Like” or “Follow” these entities on Facebook, Twitter or other social networking websites.
Whenever something particularly interesting happens online, you can expect it to start trending on-blogging site Twitter. So there’s no reason why this incredibly adorable Tweet Mug shouldn’t get some mentions on the very site where it drew inspiration.
If you have a crappy Twitter feed, why not put it on some toilet paper and wipe yourself with it? There’s an app for that! Shitter is a web-based service from Collector’s Edition that will let you turn your Twitter feed into a roll of toilet paper.
