Now that’s a very interesting turn of events here… Or maybe Twitter are simply scratching Google’s back, in hope they’ll return the favor one day? During maintenance we encountered a bug. It caused us to drop a very small percentage of tweets. One of those was Andy’s. As soon as we realized this, we began work to restore them. We were able to recover them quickly and...

parislemon: I happen to be in Paris at LeWeb where Eric Schmidt spoke today. I missed the talk, though several blogs summarized the more interesting bits. Namely, Schmidt seems to really believe that Android development will overtake iOS development in the next 6 months. This is, of course, crazy talk.

Design is the Queen - Path and Flipboard
It’s not often that I’m taking such a strong stance in favor (or against) an app, but in the case of Path and Flipboard - I’m making an exception. Path, the personal diary social service, released their V2.0 last month after almost 6 months of work - and it’s beautiful!
