Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009-04-26

Submitted by on Sunday, 26 April 20093 Comments

imagetwitter Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009 04 26Once more on our post-Saturday-night recovery day, known in some circles as “Sunday”, we take a look back at a week in Twitter.

With Brodiesan desperate to talk about a new beta, but with his lips sealed by the heavily-stapled NDA that came with it, we have simply heard muffled noises coming from him all week.

As have you guys. Sorry about that.

Also, our Spring competition came to a close, and many thanks again to everyone who entered. Remember – it’s not the winning that matters. It’s the taking part. (Yeah right!)

Fat Princess has been eating cake. Lots of it, in fact. And we also revealed that the Burn Zombie Burn! game was a treat to play. As brain-tastic as expected? Well the review went up, so go see for yourself! Everything else is listed below.

And no, it’s not the prettiest article since sliced bread*, but hey – twitter is a tough beast to tame.

  • [br] Remember that beta I alluded to this week? Well, I’ve only managed to access it NOW due to connection issues. It is a beta afterall … #
  • [br] As I mentioned before – can’t say. As soon as the NDA expires I’ll blabber like a drunk schoolkid. #
  • @NickColley Well, I’ve only just got in but yes ,it’s definitely fun and strangely addictive. I think [the makers] have something big here. in reply to NickColley #
  • We’d like to thank everyone who entered our Spring Comp. Entries closed 20 minutes ago. Check the site next week for the winner… #
  • @NickColley We always need to get permission from the winner to use their details publicly on site – regulations. Patience is a virtue! icon smile Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009 04 26 in reply to NickColley #
  • @felixthinks [br] Unfortunately giving information about when the NDA expires could inadvertently reveal what it is! When I can, I will icon smile Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009 04 26 in reply to felixthinks #
  • Once again, congrats to @MaKUltra for winning our Spring Comp! Well done… http://tinyurl.com/dkbvnr #

  • Amused that WMP 11 has been stuck at ’86% synchronizing’ for the last hour whilst it fills up my new Sony Walkman… #
  • @cc_starr It’s working… it’s just that MS aren’t good at progress bars. Got to 85% in 10 minutes, and now it is moving at 1% per 10 mins! in reply to cc_starr #
  • @PS3Attitude was here before @aplusk http://www.herebeforeaplusk.com #herebeforeaplusk #

  • If you wait long enough, chances are that @djaffe will appear on this map. Especially if he breaks another USB plug. icon wink Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009 04 26 http://is.gd/rJP2 #
  • We suppose @stephenfry *could* be voicing Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts II… #

  • @Phil_Dawson Personally, I loved Siren Blood Curse – thought it was great… in reply to Phil_Dawson #
  • RT @thesixthaxis: Note to all: the Euro PSN sale finishes today, I think – prices go back up tomorrow. #
  • [br] Review done but no time to proof/tweak etc. Expect ANOTHER zombie-themed review to hit PS3 Attitude this evening! #
  • @Phil_Dawson Sounds good. This particular member of the Twitter team would trade in The Orange Box to regain (a little) money… icon wink Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009 04 26 #KZ2 in reply to Phil_Dawson #
  • [br] Sacred 2: Fallen Angel goes gold. Expect a hack-and-slash action-RPG with a “rich story” this May 12th. Oooh! #

  • [br] re: juice. This is going to be public knowledge very soon so expect it on the site soon (as in maybe even tomorrow) #

  • @SpellOfPlay Check out our review from a while back – http://is.gd/uh49 – I’ve had one for 3 months too and it is great. Get the C905plus. in reply to SpellOfPlay #

  • @Phil_Dawson The Samsung NC-10 is the netbook of choice, and not just for the massive 7-hour battery… in reply to Phil_Dawson #
  • @Phil_Dawson [br] A lot of people I know recommend the NC10. Personally, I’m leaning towards the Compaq Mini http://bit.ly/1Hzu1k in reply to Phil_Dawson #
  • @Phil_Dawson In 2 separate head-to-head reports I read, the NC-10 outdid all others in every aspect, especially battery time & connectivity in reply to Phil_Dawson #
  • @halbpro In fact, in one magazine test, the NC-10 outlasted the time they had available for the test (i.e. still going after 8 hours!) in reply to halbpro #

*Ah yes, that oh-so-famous article called ‘sliced bread’. We keep it on a shelf now, next to our ‘Jam Jar’ article.
