Possibly With a Few Phone Calls - Digits. Twitter Alludes To WikiLeaks And #Egypt In Call For Freedom Of Expression. Probably sick of countless press emails asking for an official stance on the countless controversial hyper-mediated events like WikiLeaks and the Tunisan and Egyptian uprisings now being amplified through Twitter, co-founder Biz Stone and Twitter General Council Alexander Macgillivray have co-written the polemic “The Tweets Must Flow” essentially arguing that freedom of expression is a human right.

Key takeways: *“On a practical level, we simply cannot review all one hundred million-plus Tweets created and subsequently delivered every day.” *“We keep the information flowing irrespective of any view we may have about the content.” *“While we may need to release information as required by law, we try to notify Twitter users before handing over their information whenever we can.” *We’re hiring. Emphasizing Twitter’s transparency, Stone and Macgillivray state that Twitter has been submitting all tweet removal notices to @ChillingEffects which is releasing them through @ChillFirehose.

In late 2010, Zero Motorcycles expanded sales of its all-electric bikes to Australia. The company is selling its products in 32 countries today, including the U.S., Switzerland, Germany, Italy, the U.K. and Canada. The Future of Search: Who Will Win The Spam Wars?

The Future of Search: Who Will Win The Spam Wars?

That is what seems to have happened with my New Year’s Day post on Why We Desperately Need a New (and Better) Google. Over the last two months, there has been an avalanche of articles echoing my post (and a few before it from notable people like Jeff Atwood), including New York Magazine, Business Insider, GigaOm, TechCrunch, CNN, and The Wall Street Journal. I had a feeling that this would get Google’s attention. And I had the same concern as when I challenged the Russian government, once, in a Bloomberg BusinessWeek article about Skolkovo (a new tech park). I feared that Google would either blacklist me or do its equivalent of putting me in a Gulag—deliver even more spam when I search websites. The playlist bar - YouTube Help.
