Did Twitter Popularize Mobile Blogging in the Philippines?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: December 29, 2007

As we close in on the end of the year, I'd like to go back and review some of the more interesting discussions and debates we had throughout the year. One of them is mobile blogging (moblogging) and its future in the Philippine cybersphere. Back in April, Jayvee, Marc and I were debating on the viability of mobile blogging in the Philippines (see: Why MoBlogging isn’t hot in the Philippines?). Different viewpoints were shared -- moblogging is expensive, there are usability problems and more. My contention then was that Filipinos aren't really that hot with personal blogging. Later on, I…

Twitter to allow access on mobile phones without Internet

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: December 9, 2013

Users will soon be able to access Twitter on their entry-level mobile phones or feature phones without the need for mobile internet or mobile data plan. Twitter is looking forward to increase usage of its social networking and microblogging services in emerging markets by offering low-cost access to users even if they're just using GSM-based phones. Instead of using mobile internet, the new service will take advantage of Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) to download text-only Twitter feeds. To make this possible, Twitter is partnering with mobile software companies like U2opia Mobile and, just recently, with Myriad Group to bring…

Twitter Adds Group Messaging and Video Recording

Relevance: 84%      Posted on: January 27, 2015

Following the momentary outage in several social networking sites including Facebook and Instagram, Twitter has announced two new additional features on their service, namely Video Recording on the mobile app, as well as Group Messaging which works for both the desktop and mobile versions of Twitter, and on TweetDeck. First teased by Twitter CEO as “whisper mode” back in May, the new Group Messaging function allows twitter users to invite their followers, regardless if they’re following each other or not, in a more intimate conversation that will be limited to the invited members of a certain group. The other recently-added…

TwitterPeek: A gadget dedicated to Twitter

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: November 3, 2009

The guys behind Twitter thinks their service will become so mainstream that people will be willing to buy a gadget specific to just "tweeting". That's how TwitterPeek was conceived. This mobile device is a collaboration between Twitter Inc. and Peek Inc., thus the name. Imagine a Blackberry phone and service just for Twitter. So what can it do? Well, it can do everything you can do on a desktop Twitter client (e.g. TweetDeck) but all embedded into a wireless device as shown above. How much? The TwitterPeek sells for $99 with a $7.95 monthly fee or $199 with a lifetime…

5 reasons why you won’t see me on Twitter

Relevance: 73%      Posted on: April 15, 2007

For the still uninitiated, is a global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: What are you doing? In really simple terms, it's micro-blogging on multiple platforms - the web, your phone or on your IM. So, while a lot of friends and fellow bloggers have already jumped into the bandwagon, and though I sometimes enjoy their twittering, here's are five reasons why I haven't joined the fray. It's so like blogging in 1999 all over again. I think I've already got past that stage. When I started HTML blogging (meaning I manually code my post/entries) in…

Blogger < code >.

This is my blogger code: B9 d++ t+ k+ s u f+ i o x e+ l c-- Got it from Dean Paul's blog. I find it cute, in a techy way. It could find its way into my "about" page. Take the survey and get your blogger code here. Update: Jangelo is calling all pinoy bloggers to Digg Pinoy.Tech.Blog. Side Note: I am temporarily disabling PinoyTopBlogs. Too many SQL connections and it's dragging the server to a halt. Will have to wait for the release version of evoTopSites and install their caching system to reduce load. They told me…

Online Advertising & the Omnibus Election Code

Relevance: 71%      Posted on: January 29, 2007

I'm no Election Law expert nor am I a lawyer trying to explain some mumbo-jumbo about the Omnibus Election Code. However, I'd like to start some discussions about online or internet advertising in relation to the upcoming May 2007 elections (looks like I'm into this election lately). First, Internet Advertising. I quickly glanced at the Omnibus Election Code of the Philippines and there wasn't a section about campaigning thru the internet nor any provisions which monitors advertising online. There are specific sections on equalizing air-time among candidates on TV and radio but still none for the internet. (A side note:…

Twitter adds Indo, SG on Trends; skips PH

Relevance: 70%      Posted on: November 16, 2010

Twitter just announced it has added over a dozen more countries and cities in the local Trending Topics list. These countries represent their fastest-growing markets around the globe. I quickly browsed over the list expecting Manila or the Philippines to be there. Two South-East Asian countries were included -- Indonesia and Singapore. No Philippines. Now that's saying something. And I thought were were the social media capital of the world with the fastest growing population on FB and Twitter? And I know local topics and personalities have been constantly on Twitter's global trending topic as well. Why Indonesia and Singapore…

Now broadcasting on Twitter

Relevance: 70%      Posted on: December 9, 2007

Ok, I said before that I don't see myself being on Twitter. Just so many scary stories about it. Nevertheless, my seminar on new media and Web 2.0 has actually forced me to sign-up for one. So, yeah, I'm on Twitter. What's so funny is that when I signed a few days ago, I forgot about it and never told anyone. Today, I found people were already following me. How d'ya know that? If you want to add me or follow me, my username is easy to figure out.
