A video of the “Twitter Movie Trailer” has gone viral lately. The trailer tells the story of Twitter co-founders Jack Dorsey, Ev Williams and Biz Stone.

The video is actually a parody of the upcoming Facebook movie. After the movie was announced many parodies popped up and this one is definitely one of my favorites.

For those of you that don’t know, Chatroulette is a website that pairs random strangers from around the world together for webcam-based conversations (source: Wikipedia).

Meeting people on Chatroulette can be fun, but when you meet this girl, it might not be so much fun anymore. I’ve seen the videos and I wasn’t really scared by the girl, but I loved the flabbergasted reactions of the people she was chatting with.

The people of marketing firm Flowtown created a new world map called “2010 Social Networking Map“.
The map was inspired by XKCD’s “Map of Online Communities” an image that went viral for awhile.
I like the fact that they’ve taken the image all the way, including names of the oceans and naming MySpace and Wikipedia ‘ Former Kingdom of MySpace’  and ‘United Territories of Wikimedia’. Google ofcourse is called ‘ Empire of Google’. Tjongolongo! How fun is that!
