#demandaljazeera How Al Jazeera is using Twitter to get onto US cable TV Networks

Al Jazeera has been at the center of all thats been happening in Egypt and now the news channel has started using Twitter to promote itself. What they want is to convince American cable TV networks to now start broadcasting their English news channel. Although we see news and a lot of videos on the going-ons in Egypt a lot of that comes from their media coverage. They have also said that 50% of all traffic coming to their live stream is coming from the US. A spokesperson for the news network has said that they have come up with innovative ways to broadcast their news in Egypt, pamphlets have been distributed when their broadcast signal went down and these pamphlets had the latest news for people to follow. 

This according to
When people couldn’t tune in because their broadcast signal went down, Al Jazeera distributed pamphlets with the latest updates and information about alternate ways to access its news coverage. It also published phoned-in reports using Scribble Live and Audioboo. Online staffs, Minty said, have been using Storify internally to curate and keep track of citizen videos and other social content. (And as many noted last week, the network has also offered up some of its coverage through Creative Commons.)

Now the company is again on Twitter and promoting itself to people around the world. #demandaljazeera is now trending no1 on worldwide trending topics.
To watch their live stream please head over here
And now there is a meetup being organized by Al Jazeera for US viewers on Feb 10, 2011. If you would like to find your nearest location please click here. The News Agency is also busy organizing other meetups across the globe.

#delicious Trend on Twitter

Contrary to rumors being circulated delicious is not being shut down. In fact Yahoo on their company blog have announced that delicious is not being shut down but will need to find a home outside the company. Delicious does have a lot of loyal and faithful users who have used this service to store all their bookmarks on the net. The panic created from the rumor that delicious is bing shut down has sent users scurrying to find an alternate service and try to export their bookmarks.

People are actively discussing the situation on Twitter and many users have started to panic. Which is not the case since the service is not actually being shut down.

This is what yahoo had to say about the whole thing

What’s Next for Delicious?

Many of you have read the news stories about Delicious that began appearing yesterday. We’re genuinely sorry to have these stories appear with so little context for our loyal users. While we can’t answer each of your questions individually, we wanted to address what we can at this stage and we promise to keep you posted as future plans get finalized.

Is Delicious being shut down? And should I be worried about my data?

- No, we are not shutting down Delicious. While we have determined that there is not a strategic fit at Yahoo!, we believe there is a ideal home for Delicious outside of the company where it can be resourced to the level where it can be competitive.

What is Yahoo! going to do with Delicious?

- We’re actively thinking about the future of Delicious and we believe there is a home outside the company that would make more sense for the service and our users. We’re in the process of exploring a variety of options and talking to companies right now. And we’ll share our plans with you as soon as we can.

What if I want to get my bookmarks out of Delicious right away?

- As noted above, there’s no reason to panic. We are maintaining Delicious and encourage you to keep using it. That said, we have export options if you so choose. Additionally, many services provide the ability to import Delicious links and tags.

We can only imagine how upsetting the news coverage over the past 24 hours has been to many of you. Speaking for our team, we were very disappointed by the way that this appeared in the press. We’ll let you know more as things develop.

#newtwitter trend on Twitter

#newtwitter is now trending on Twitter and that's because the new design has started rolling out to all users. New Twitter is a whole new look and feel and a re-engineered search engine. Handling over 1 billion queries a day parts of the Twitter search engine has been re-engineered to handle the load. The new search engine they say will be able to take the load for years to come.

New Twitter has a few differences from the old layout and you see your Tweets timeline on the left and on the right there has been a whole lot of space cleared up which shows you current trends. Clicking on a Twitter will bring up a pane which slides to the right and shows you the latest post and profile of the user. If the tweet contains a pic or a video that will open up on the pane on the right. There will be the standard user timeline but underneath each Tweet is additional information and even embedded media (videos/photos). If you click on an individual Tweet, a details pane will slide to the right to reveal this extra content.

This is what the folk @ Twitter have to say about the new Twitter.

You can find out more about the enhancements on this information page. Here are some highlights:

  • New design. The site has a cleaner timeline and a rich details pane that instantly adds more impact to individual Tweets while still maintaining the simplicity of the timeline. And, experience infinite scroll -- you no longer have to click “more” to view additional Tweets.

  • Media. Now, it’s easy to see embedded photos and videos directly on Twitter, thanks to partnerships with DailyBooth, deviantART, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, Photozou, Plixi, Twitgoo, TwitPic, TwitVid, USTREAM, Vimeo, yfrog, and YouTube.

  • Related content. When you click a Tweet, the details pane shows additional information related to the author or subject. Depending on the Tweet’s content, you may see: replies, other Tweets by that user, a map of where a geotagged Tweet was sent from, and more.

  • Mini profiles. Click a username to see a mini profile without navigating from the page, which provides quick access to account information, including bio and recent Tweets.

Video: Usain Bolt loses a race

The world's fastest man Usain Bolt was just beaten in a 100 meters track and field event at IAAF Diamond League DN Galan meet Friday in Stockholm  by American Tyson Gay. Tyson finished the race in 9.84 seconds ahead of Usain Bolt. Usain's fastest timing however is 9.58 and that says a lot about his actual speed. 

“Just one of those days,” Bolt said. “I told you I’m not unbeatable. I did not train as hard as in past years, so I can’t complain. And it was Tyson Gay. My congratulations to him. I’m not in my best shape and he is in great shape.... I simply wasn’t ready enough for that clash.”

Usain Bolt however is now trending on the world wide topics at number 1. People on Twitter are talking about it, seems a shock that someone as fast as him can loose so easily. However it goes to show athletes at no 1. cannot afford to take chances and become lax. Usian said himself he has not been training hard enough.

Video: Pulpo Paul the Psychic Octopus predicts Spain over Holland.

It's Spain! Oracle Paul the Psychic Octopus predicts Spain will beat Holland and win the World Cup. The world-famous octopus could be seen sitting on a tank marked with a Spanish flag for only a few minutes before grabbing out a mussel and devouring it, while completely ignoring the Dutch tank indicating a Spanish victory in Sunday's final match in the World Cup. Paul correctly predicted Germany's wins over Argentina, England, Australia and Ghana and the country's loss to Spain and Serbia.

Pulpo Paul is now trending on Twitter and not surprisingly pushed onto the trending topics by Spanish people. If Paul proves himself to be right, the Oracle who is already world famous and has a following of his own will truly go down into the annals of world cup history.

 It also needs to be noted that Paul will not be grilled or put onto the Sushi Menu because of his predictions back home in Germany. Spanish Fans have also vowed to protect him. 

"That was fast -- it looks like a clear-cut victory for Spain," said Tanja Munzig, spokeswoman for Sea Life in Oberhausen. She was surprised by his speed in picking Spain. For some matches it took Paul 70 minutes to decide.

Reaction in Spain was swift, with the country's biggest selling sports daily website running the headline: "The octopus Paul makes us champions".
