Will Twitter be sold to the highest bidder? Or are there bigger plans of Internet Networking domination in the future?

This must be a bigger target demographic than I thought.

Rejoice, my fellow Graphic Designers!

Ever since Tropicana rebranded their packaging, there’s been almost nothing but negativity towards the decision.

I remember the first time I saw it at the local Shaw’s (which I can’t bring myself to call Star Market), I thought it was horrendous. It reminded me of those 3-dimensional models of the planet where there was a quadrant cut out and you could see all the layers beneath the crust. I don’t need my orange juice to remind me of lava, it’s acidic enough as is.

Anyway, here’s a link to the article that made my day.

And here’s a picture of an ad we have on BU campus, that hopefully will be gone soon!

Interesting article: Twitter gets half the press coverage of Facebook, but a fraction of its traffic

While I think the title is syntactically horrid, the article does pose some interesting questions. Are people just talking about Twitter because everyone else is? Maybe it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy, where people think they should be on Twitter and make big news out of it because that’s what they think that’s where the trend is headed. I personally am not on Twitter (yet), because I get enough connectivity via Facebook, GChat, AIM, SMS messaging, four separate e-mail addresses, and telephony (remember actually hearing the sound of people’s voices?). But we’ll see.

So of course, the million dollar question is: Why is Twitter so popular?
