Some fun: Twitpocalypse

Twitter bird 4Recently, we experienced the Twitpocalypse!

Be very afraid…

Well not really, the only negative outcome of the Twitpocalypse was that some people couldn’t send Tweets through Twitteriffic for about a day.

The Twitpocalypse happened due to the fact that Twitter reached 2,147,483,647 Tweets, which meant that the unique identification number associated with Twitter started going into negative numbers which freaked out some third part applications such as Twitterific. All is better now though.

What does this mean? Well, Twitter is reaching a point where so much is happening on it! The Iranian elections have famously been broadcast using Twitter, and well, a lot of people are getting onto Twitter. Maybe you should to.

(This also  means that some people care too much about Twitter to call this the “Twitpocalypse“)

Maybe you would like to read other things that I have written about Twitter if you have read this far…
