Drop.io, a nicely implemented file transfer service, just added support for Twitter. Now Drop.io users can set up a drop to update tweet when it changes. Pretty cool. The cool guys at Drop.io are calling it Tweet.io. You add just about anything to a drop, even a voice mail, so the use cases are pretty endless.
I’m clapping for Blaine Cook, x lead architect for Twitter, and I’d like to thank Blaine for all the hard work he put into making Twitter what it is today. Twitter may be experiencing some growing pains but I think Blaine is catching more flack for the problems this week than he deserves. Throw out a Tweet for Blain and thank him for all of his hard work – attach the hash tag #thankyoublainecook. Blain’s website – includes phone number and email address if you’re looking for his contact info.

Scoble gets inside Twitter headquarters. Scoble posted An inside look at Twitter yesterday, a video interview on the scene at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, featuring pretty close to the entire staff. There’s a lot of good stuff in this interview. Scoble covers everything from their recent round of funding to the technology under the hood at Twitter. Worth watching if you’re at all interested in Twitter and services like it – or Web 2.0 bubble companies for that matter ; )
My Twitter Profile. My take on Twitter and services like it – there’s a future in the micro-blogging format but I don’t really have a use for it in my life or work today. My Friendverse doesn’t Tweet so that makes the service pretty useless as far as I’m concerned. Following events or popular people using the service just isn’t my thing. Connecting it to SMS just makes my Q really annoying.
