Everyone loves to hate on Canadian pop rock group Nickelback’s tunes, so naturally, the Defensive Nickelback Fan had to stand up for them on Twitter. Unfortunately all that defending must have eaten away at his weary soul — his tweets fizzled out after two days. Still, worth visiting for one or two chuckles.

Now this is fun! Host Sydney have launched The Merry Twitter Tree, a Christmas tree that’s literally lit by Tweets that contain the words ‘Merry Christmas’. The tree, which sits in their Sydney office, is being streamed live. The more ‘Merry Christmas’ is tweeted, the more the tree flickers. Ho, ho, ho, and all that.
If you Tweet, Twit, or just plain Tweak (yes, that’s right, Tweak), then we have got the feed for you. Ours! We get access to tips that we don’t always post about, so we Tweet it, ’cause, Twitter is so right now. Follow Lost At E Minor on Twitter now.
If there was a statement that sums up the Facebook revolution for a lot of people, FACEBOOK RUINED MY LIFE would be it. You’ve been there with me, agonising over how to successfully hide a break-up, been found by people who should have remained lost, been stalked by these people, and just when you think you’ve blocked them, there’s an email demanding an explanation why. Oh wait, maybe that’s just me.

Example? Swap ‘late for class’ with ‘covered in bees’ and see what mayhem and confessionals ensue.
Now this is very clever, though you have to be a little patient to access it as the site takes a while to load. Created by Japanese developers, the IS Parade website asks you to type in your Twitter name, then generates a fun 3D parade of your Twitter followers, trailing merrily in your wake. And it all comes with a bouncy musical backing and some rather interesting sound effects.
We did a short Twitter interview (a Twinterview) yesterday with designer and illustrator Deanne Cheuk and asked her to nominate her favourite artwork by another artist. She came back with this striking Mark Tansey painting: ‘To me’, she said, ‘it’s so full of hope and youth. I love it!’
What would you be prepared to do for $5? I mean, really? Would you sell your first born, dance with a stranger? Yeah? Well, now you can prove it. The Fiverr site is ‘the place for people to share things they’re willing to do for $5′. Err, five dollar Skype clarinet lesson, anyone?
