I am sure I should be doing something else to get ready for Christmas. (eCard is done.) The stereo is crankin Them Crooked Vultures. The presents are either wrapped or on their way from Amazon to hit our porch today. (I read today that shopping online saves 35% in carbon resources over shopping at the mall.) I think the chores are done. We’ve got to get on with some Lunch soon, but for now I am content to rock out and do me some tweetin. Here’s the eye catching sites that popped out at me on this very twitter-enhanced holiday.
The Twitter Pyramid of Shit
Funnily enough, my Mom sent me this picture. The question is.. who are the top level guys that are considered assholes?

15 Most Annoying Types of Twitter Users
It can be argued that those of us who tweet links to content on the web are the most annoying of Twitter users. That is the “category” that I fit in, so it makes sense that I would exclude my personal type from this list.
Twitter at a Crossroads: Audience Growth Won’t Be Enough in 2010
I’d also like to draw attention to the Twitter prediction. Twitter has been fiddling around and growing like mad but without a business model for years now. In 2010, growth is not sufficient. One of two things will happen. Either Twitter will have a business generating $100 million at an annualized rate by the end of 2010, or it’s going to get bought by the likes of Google, Facebook or Microsoft. I don’t believe it can continue as a huge force that has no visible means of support. Do you?

Santa Cams are ultra-cool, high-tech, high-speed digital cameras pre-positioned at many locations around the world only on Christmas Eve. The cameras capture images and videos of Santa and his reindeer as they make their journey around the world.
And my bah humbug tweet for the end of the year fun is:
If Santa used 4square: “I’m at Jimmys… I’m at Sarah’s… I’m at… Punjab’s…” HINT: If you’re not Santa I don’t care where you “am at”! JMac Tweeted Christmas Eve 2009.
