TweetDeck Hidden Gem: Translated Tweets

cc licensed flickr photo by me! (do I need to attribute myself? will I sue myself? This was not the photo I wished I had taken at Northern Voice 2009. There was a moment in the back of the auditorium, during one of the big keynote sessions, when I glance at all the open laptops- […]


Tweet and Receive
