In the not-so-distant past, news generally tended to travel in a few well-worn paths. It was reported by a newspaper, it appeared on television at noon or 6 p.m. or it was mentioned on a drive-time radio show — and those involved usually had plenty of time to report it and produce it. The arrival of CNN and 24-hour news changed all of that, however, and Twitter and Facebook have changed it again: Now the news is just as likely to appear in a tweet or to be posted as a status update by someone who is directly involved in the event .
This week I went to the Royal Courts of Justice to offer support to someone who is in a lot of trouble because of a not particularly funny joke. As an erstwhile pedlar of some not particularly funny jokes (just ask the Guardian's comedy critic, he doesn't dig what I do at all), this matters to me a great deal. As you walk into the Royal Courts of Justice, you are supposed to be awed by this Victorian legal cathedral, and I suppose you might be if the reason for you being there were not so ridiculous. Paul Chambers, who completely fits the "regular guy" bill, is in court to appeal against a conviction that stemmed from the law having one of its periodic Monty Python-does-Kafka brainfarts. I've never read any Kafka, by the way; maybe I should, and then I'd be as clever as genuflectee Stewart Lee.

Unfortunately – the model of get followers, engage in friendly banter ad nauseam & wait for business to miraculously appear seems to be the norm. Let’s face it, if Twitter returned on just a fraction of its potential then the UK would have tweeted itself to recovery a long time ago - the UK has one of the highest concentrations of users, in the world?

Curriculum 4/16/2009 By: Why should educators get involved with Twitter?
New research from Sysomos shows that 92.4% of all retweets happen within the first hour after the tweet has been sent. This demonstrates that Twitter users are not browsing the public stream (or even their own lists) to find and interact with tweets from earlier in the day. Consequently, WHEN you send your tweets has a tremendous impact on virality.
With a nod to Abbie Hoffman , allow me to introduce reTweet.it , a service that allows you to buy retweets–cash or credit. The program allows you to trade retweets for credits: every two retweets by you gets you one retweet of your own. You can also get credits just by signing up, and by referring others.
