But as a public service announcement, below are a couple of sure fire signs of an impending twitocaylpse

Jason Calacanis Quits – He quit blogging because he wasn’t enjoying it anymore; if digital’s most divisive figures jumps ship, you know it’s on its way out….

Your Mum Gets An Account – Facebook suggests people who you might know based on mutual friends and pops their mug shot into the sidebar. For the last few months, I’ve had various friends parents staring at me from screen right, which is a little off putting when I’m procrastinating at work.
