And even Twitter co-founder Biz Stone struggles to get neo-Nazis booted. What's an ordinary user to do? Enter MuckTweet. [more inside]

Global Voices - News About Japan

Since September 2014 I have contributed stories about Japan as Global Voices' Japan Editor. I report on what Japanese people are actually saying about the news on Twitter, in blogs, and on 2chan (somewhat similar to Reddit). Often I can find eyewitness accounts (in Japanese) to what's happening in the news, sometimes even scooping Western news outlets. It's all about presenting an authentic, slightly quirky take on current events in Japan.

Augur: iPhone App That Uses Twitter to Predict the Future

Augur is an iPhone app that displays random Twitter posts, and attempts to provide both advice and prophesy. Pulling from a growing list of keywords, the app ignores any Twitter posts containing links, images, #hashtags, or @mentions. It also parses out any first person mention (I, Me, Myself) and tries to present Twitter posts containing second personal conditionals (You will, You shall, etc). [more inside]

SXSW Social Media Bingo

I made this multiplayer bingo game to help you keep your sanity at SXSW (or any other place you find yourself drowning in social media buzzwords). Invite your friends to a game, then click off egregious jargon as you hear it spoken around you. Get five in a row and you "win"! Or lose, depending on how you look at it.

NoTruePatriot.org - Full documentation of the "Digg Patriots" movement

As described by this article, this post, and this comment, the Digg Patriots were an organized corps of conservatives operating out of an invitation-only Yahoo! group for the purpose of gaming social news giant Digg -- suppressing left-leaning content, spamming right-wing stories, and using dirty tactics to harass and ban political enemies. While their exposure made waves online, the lack of concrete evidence raised questions about their very existence. Now, after taking time to redact and format the data, the evidence is here. NoTruePatriot.org documents nearly a year of Digg Patriots activity, 12,900 posts in all, in a sortable, searchable database. Take your time to peruse their posts and judge for yourself the seriousness of their actions. [more inside]
