Selection of My Twitter Favorites, Edition 4

Twitter is a microblogging service where people answer the question "What are you doing?" via 140-character messages from their cellphone, laptop or desktop. You can select the messages you find useful, amusing, or both. Here is the 4rd edition of My Twitter Favorites (the oldest post is at the bottom, the newest at the top):
Robert Scoble

scanman "Driving in India is not about skill," says Tulsi Ram (in yellow shirt). "It's about reflexes." -- True.

  1. Those tweets are really great. Please keep doing these posts.

  2. Jared,

    I'm glad you like the selection.

    Twitter proves to be more useful than what one expects at first sight.

    Will keep collecting the best posts. The backlinks work, so you can always check the original and subscribe to the author. The links to images however are broken when somebody changes their profile picture.
