AUSTIN / TECHNOLOGY : TWITTER Is NewsBlog's New Home.
After a long dispute with an unresponsive...and seemingly indifferent webmaster at Google's Blogger...over months of spurious USA page view stats...and the invasion of increasingly annoying spider bots...Twitter is the NEW home of ALL of this blog editor's news posts/links.
Not having heard anything from Google...it is unlikely that this Google blog will return.
But on Twitter...this editor will be able to link to MORE stories...in LESS time...and even from some news sites now blocked by restrictive paywalls.
Plus...Twitter provides an immediacy to #hash-tagged news items...that Google News can only dream about.
Sadly, the visual array of news images will disappear.
So...view the @HyperObserver at its new Twitter home...for this editor's daily selection of stories...from the torrent of world news.
