Friday Fun: LA Earthquake Info Hits Twitter
Friday fun: In the latest information source to connect to the popular micro messaging site Twitter, an intrepid programmer has created a Twitter robot--@earthquakesLA which allows Twitter users to see the latest earthquakes in the Los Angeles area, based on data from the USGS. According to the timeline of creator @billsnitzer, the new Twitter robot was created on May 4th. Other interesting Twitter creations which have surfaced recently include a coffee maker--which tweets the status of coffee made on an office coffee maker--and a Twitter-powered popcorn popper.
