Mashable Article on “STOP SOPA”

“Sites such as Wikipedia and Reddit are going “dark” this Wednesday, Jan. 18, to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) which, critics contend, would compromise the ability of any site that includes outside links to carry on current operations.

Feeling left out? A simple piece of code is helping the entire web (from major sites to even the humblest of Tumblrs) go dark in solidarity. The code, called STOP SOPA, replaces any site’s landing page with a black screen. Using your mouse a flashlight uncovers a message explaining the need to kill SOPA and a link to anti-SOPA site AmericanCensorship.org.”

Twitter Bug Lost Followers

It appears a bug has popped up on Twitter today.  Apparently this bug “allows users to make anyone follow them“.  I’m sure you can see how this could be a bit of an issue for Twitter and it’s loyal clan.  Some of the details on this snafu are:  “writing “[tweet] accept [username]” then the [username] immediately starts following you.”

Want to know more, check out some of these sources:

4Square Day 2010 is approaching and the buzz around the social networks is really starting to pick up.  Interestingly, though, its not just about “social”.  This morning I noticed tweet after tweet from local businesses offering discounts and deals for the nationwide 4Square event.

If you surf over to their website, you’ll find a listing of the “Top Participating Cities” such as:

(big props to FL & GIT Tampa!   ;P  )

There are also currently some “4square swarm parties” scheduled:

Tampa Bay, FL USA Swarm

Foursquare Day Global Swarm

There are a few other sources for information such as:
