Earlier today, the U.S. declared a public health emergency over the Swine Flu, after confirming 20 cases of the flu spreading to humans in New York, Ohio, Kansas, Texas and California. More than 80 people have died in Mexico from the disease, which has potentially spread to other countries, including Canada and France. Although Federal officials are urging Americans not to panic about the disease, fear of contracting the potentially deadly flu is quickly spreading over Twitter, Google, and blogs across the web.
The panic concerning the swine flu is occurring on the Web.
I hear that the swine flu is the maximum topic in Twitter.
I hear that the appearance rate of the key word named Swine Flu in the blog article will have increased rapidly moreover.
I hear that the retrieval of the key word named Swine Flu will have increased according to Google Trends and.
I hear that Tamiflu and Relenza are effective for the swine flu according to the news of the television in Japan.
I hope the panic doesn’t extend.

Here’s a heck of a rumor that we’ve sourced from two separate people close to the negotiations: Google is in late stage negotiations to acquire Twitter. We don’t know the price but can assume its well, well north of the $250 million valuation that they saw in their recent funding.
Will it be true that Google acquires Twitter?
“Twitter” by the Twitter user might become a marvelous number by this news.

Everybody’s doing it. Even YouTube has succumbed to Twitter mania. Below every video if you click on the “Share” link you will find three options: MySpace, Facebook, and now Twitter. You can expand the box for even ore sharing options, but those are the main three and Twitter was just recently added.
Clicking on the Twitter button opens a pop-up window that takes you to your Twitter account and fills in a Tweet telling your followers to “check out this video,” along with the title and URL. The URL is not shortened, but YouTube is working on that. (Youtube URLs are short anyway, so it is not a huge issue).
I hear that WordPress.com made widget for Twitter and YouTube also added the Twitter button.
Twitter seems to be infiltrating the world.
Hitwise Ranks Election Traffic To News Sites(November 5, 2008 TechCrunch)
Hitwise has released a ranking of some of the top news sites, measured by traffic on Election Day. CNN.com came out on top, seeing a 146 percent spike over the day before. But MSNBC.com, Fox News, and the Drudge report all saw nice bumps as well. ABCNews.com had a record day, with a 113 percent jump in traffic over the day before. And CNN’s Political Ticker blog by itself saw a 122 percent jump. (Twitter traffic rose 43 percent and traffic to Twitter Election 2008 rose 1,100 percent).
However, I hear that there were news sites where traffic fell oppositely according to the article.
It is fatal as the news site.
It is necessary to change greatly as a news site.

Everything awesome always happens in Japan first. Even, it seems, when it involves an American startup. Digital Garage , Twitter’s partner with Twitter Japan, launched Twicco, a site that lets Twitter users create groups and then subscribe to them.
I hear that Twicco was launched to Twitter Japan.
The community of mother who was doing Twitter was made before outside of Twitter.
There was a demand for the function to make the group and the community in Twitter.
First of all, it seems to have started it from Japan.
If this function gets on the right track, a similar function might be launched by the United States.
Twittermoms Shows Why Twitter Needs Groups(September 19, 2008 TechCrunch)
This is why Twitter needs groups. After only 15 days, mothers are signing up at an astounding rate to Twittermoms.com. According to its founder, the site’s growth has been unexpectedly strong, and about 39 percent of its 5,000-or-so daily users are considered “addicts” based on Quantcast figures.
So what gives?
Twittermoms is not what you think. It isn’t a Twitter clone for mothers. Instead, it’s a site where moms who Twitter can come together and talk about being mothers. It is a perfect demographic for Twitter, filled with people who have lots of real opinions based on experience and like to share them.
Twittermoms.com seems to be popular.
This site seems to be a site in which mother who uses not Twitter for mother but Twitter mutually gathers, and it talks about the living.
Twitter seems to have to establish the group site and the community gripping such needs.
