According to officials investigating the Mumbai attacks, the terrorists used images from Google Earth to help learn their way around.

Twitter gets you fired in 140 characters or less - Technotica - Why waste valuable social networking hours getting yourself "Facebook fired," when Twitter allows you to humiliate yourself quickly, and in 140 characters or less?

To illustrate, here’s the tweet the now Web-infamous "theconnor" shared with the world: "Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.” It wasn’t long before Tim Levad, a "channel partner advocate" for Cisco Alert, shared this open response: "Who is the hiring manager. Was "theconnor’s" job offer rescinded? This social networking comedy of errors spread like dancing hamsters across Twitter. Even if the good folks at Cisco somehow see their way past "theconnor’s" monolithic lack of inner monologue, there’s a lesson here: The Internet can get you fired.

Twitter took off from simple to 'tweet' success By Jefferson Graham, USA TODAY SAN FRANCISCO — "What are you doing?" That question is the rocket fuel for Twitter — a hot social-network service that lets you tell people what you are up to at any given moment of the day — via cellphone, instant messenger, or the Web. "What are you doing?" "When people hear about Twitter, their immediate reaction is that it's the simplest and stupidest idea in the world," says co-founder Biz Stone. "They do not want to know that their brother is eating a hot dog right now," he says. Boy, do they. Twitter has become so popular, so fast, that keeping up with its fast-growing user base is a real issue. That could be about to change.
