Useful links from the last few days

Useful links that caught my eye:

  • The curse of Twitter – Telegraph – Good round-up of how organisations have got Twitter wrong. Includes examples such as Union boss Derek Simpson tweeting about talks with British Airways, causing rioters to make an appearance, disrupting the meeting.
  • Results At Virtual World Habbo Hotel Rebound | paidContent:UK – Who talks about virtual worlds anymore? Habbo Hotels owners Sulake has however posted its best quarter ever from selling virtual goods in-world. Interesting to note that Habbo Hotels has a very respectable 15 million unique users up from 11.5 18 months ago. Compare that to the 2008 success story Second Life where the number of actual human beings logging in is probably less than a million.
