Bill Cosby On His Most Recent Death: Please Stop, It Isn’t Funny [Video]

One bad thing about Twitter is that it is a huge medium for misinformation.  So many people see an interesting tweet, instantly believe it, and retweet it, without fact-checking anything.  That’s exactly what happened recently when Bill Cosby was reported dead for the fourth time.

He’s not dead, of course, but thanks to the guy who tweeted it, everyone thought he was.  Cosby’s family and friends called his house in tears to find out if he was okay.  The person behind this clearly does not understand how upsetting this is.  “I just wanna say to friends of that person,” Cosby said in a CNN interview, “just tell him to stop because it isn’t funny.”   Read more of this post

Looking For The Best Android Twitter Client? Try Twitter’s!

Are you looking for the best Android Twitter app?  Have you tried Twitter’s?  I have to take a moment to vouch for Twitter For Android (or just Twitter, as it’s called in the Android market).  I have tried several other clients on the Android platform, including HTC Peep (which comes pre-installed on every HTC smartphone), Seesmic, Hootsuite, TwitDroid, and others.  Most of those are really great applications, but the official app, in my opinion, is far better.   Read more of this post
