Ralph Fiennes blames Twitter for 'eroding' language "I hear it, too, from people at drama schools, who say the younger intake find the density of a Shakespeare text a challenge in a way that, perhaps, (students) a few generations ago maybe wouldn't have." He said: "I think we're living in a time when our ears are attuned to a flattened and truncated sense of our English language, so this always begs the question, is Shakespeare relevant? But I love this language we have and what it can do, and aside from that I think the themes in his plays are always relevant." Fiennes, who does not use Twitter, is not alone in his theory. JP Davidson, the author of Planet Word and a linguistic expert, talked this week about longer words dying out in favour of shortened text message-style terms.

LONDON: Marketing chiefs feel overwhelmed by the growing volume of customer data on websites like Facebook and Twitter, and while they realise its potential value they consider themselves ill-equipped to harness it, an IBM study found. Only 26 percent of chief marketing officers track blogs and just 40 percent track any online communications, while 82 percent still rely on traditional market research to shape marketing strategies, according to the study. A few top consumer brands, such as Coca-Cola , Nike and Starbucks -- are using high-profile social media campaigns to great effect to find out what their customers want and to communicate with them. But most CMOs are struggling to prove that investments in social media marketing would yield returns, according to the survey of more than 1,700 CMOs published on Tuesday and carried out in face-to-face interviews from February to June. "The perfect solution is to serve each consumer individually. Marketers struggle to harness social media like Facebook & twitter: IBM Survey
He was jailed for 11 days during the protests in Egypt, but when he was released he was given a tumultuous welcome by the protesters in Tahrir Square, for whom he became something of a figurehead. Intriguingly, Mr Jagland hinted that the award might be given not to an individual but to "a big mission - something important for the world." That has given rise to some predictions that the committee could even honour Twitter or Facebook, which emerged as vital tools for activists to harness opposition to Arab regimes, plan protests and document attacks on demonstrators. Equally, it could mean that the "We are all Khaled Said" group might emerge as the winner. Nobel Peace Prize: Could Facebook or Twitter win?

When Can Employers Fire You for Facebook, Twitter?
After the riots across England last month, social network chiefs from Facebook and Twitter, along with representatives from Research in Motion, attended a UK parliamentary committee yesterday to discuss the role of social media and technology during the week of violence. Research in Motion drew heavy criticism by politicians and the public, as it was discovered that the encrypted BlackBerry Messenger network was used by rioters to spread locations of places where disorder eventually occurred. Facebook and Twitter were also criticised during the aftermath of the riots, but Facebook said that many of its users "self-policed" the site. Twitter, on the other hand, was defiant and said that the "tweets must flow" , a point it made during the Arab Spring uprising earlier this year.

Four Stages in the Life of a Twitter User Few years back when i joined twitter, I was not at all convinced with the service. In my opinion at that time, Twitter was primarily for celebrities and socialites to communicate with their fans and followers, but I did realize the power of twitter very soon after that. It’s not just the high valuations these Social Media companies are getting but some of them are really worth it. Twitter has recently become number 1 in breaking any news be it earthquakes, Celebrity giving birth to a baby or death of Micheal Jackson. All of these first broke on twitter.

As expected, China is the new IMF. No surprise there. All this means is that China will do everything in its power to prevent the ECB from launching an outright unsterilized monetization episode, which will double the amount of importable inflation (plunging EUR) to hit the Chinese domestic economy, and destabilize the already shaky stability, so critical for the Chinese communist party. And since the USD and the CNY are pegged, this has the added benefit of devaluaing the CNY instead even more if not against the USD, then against the CNY, which is now importing European sovereign risk and will continue to do so, until China finds itself in the same lock out as half of Europe currently. As for the IMF popularity contest, better known as "who is thst most feminine", it has just been relegated into complete historic obscurity and irrelevance.

More than 77,000 federal government employees throughout the country — including computer operators, more than 5,000 air traffic controllers, 22 librarians and one interior designer — earned more than the governors of the states in which they work. The findings, from a Congressional Research Service report requested by Sen. Tom Coburn , Oklahoma Republican, were released at a time when public workers’ salaries and benefits are under scrutiny across the country as governments try to streamline. CRS reviewed 2009 salary figures, the most recent available, and found 77,057 employees who earned more in annual pay than their respective governors. Of those workers, 18,351 were doctors — the highest percentage. The second-highest total was for 5,170 air traffic controllers — likely both front-line controllers and their supervisors. 77,000 federal workers paid more than governors
A new Twitter user is revealing more celebrity gagging orders - Twitter Reports abound that a new Twitter user going by the name of @Legal_Aids has been publishing yet more claims about High Court gagging orders taken out by high-profile celebrities and politicians. At the time of writing, the Twitter account in question has well over a thousand followers. The user has been posting fresh claims about supposed gagging orders, with links to news articles and court documents, though many of the ‘revelations’ link to old, existing stories and court documents that don’t name the celebrities in question. Whilst it was reported that Twitter had started the process of removing a lot of the information, the nature of Twitter as a real-time publishing platform means that information has already been retweeted. And this is why Twitter is proving such a difficult platform to manage from a legal perspective.
