Teen tweeter cashes-in on SUL placement

BBC: “A Twitter feed set up by a Dutch teenager as a hobby has been taken over by Microsoft news channel MSNBC.com.”

The report emphasizes the rate that the feed is growing, by 3000 to 4000 followers per day. What it doesn’t say is that the feed is on Twitter’s Suggested Users List, and that growth is normal for feeds on the list, even ones that aren’t run by prodigious teens.

Editorial comment: Might as well say that a Dutch teenager amazes his parents by traveling from Europe to America in a matter of hours. Without saying that he booked a flight on KLM. :-)

We live in a time of pseudo news.

Another observation. It would be interesting to know how much Microsoft paid for the kid’s feed. That would, right there, establish the monetary value for SUL placement.

This is a test post on Tumblr

I’ve got a dream that someday this text will appear on my Tumblr site. (Check.)

The cool thing about this is that now we have parity between Tumblr and WordPress as far as the LifeLiner tool is concerned.

Now we have a very nice and unique leveling of the playing field with three publishing environments. The third is, of course, Twitter. :-)
