Weekly Web Roundup: The Twitter Edition #8

Weekly Web Roundup

The biggest news this week was the announcement from Google about their new operating system – Google Chrome OS. It will be an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks and available in late 2010.

One of my favourite finds this week has been What Is The Fail Whale from Yiying Lu. It’s a site dedicated to the adorable ‘Fail Whale’ image which occurs during periods of downtime on Twitter. It’s amazing to find so much has been written on the illustration!

Alongside the major news there were plenty of other great articles and resources being published over the last week, my favourite of which are summarised below.

I’ve called this the Twitter edition due to the popularity of the first link below which focused on the different stages of Twitter, it certainly rang true for a lot of us!

That’s a wrap up of the eighth edition. Were there any links you thought deserved a mention? If so drop a link in the comments so we can check them out.
