View tweets via twitterfall

Twitterfall is a way of viewing the latest ‘tweets’ of upcoming trends and custom searches on the micro-blogging site Twitter. Updates fall from the top of the page in near-realtime.

For popular trends, Twitter is queried from the Twitterfall server, and results are pushed to your browser, rather than your browser doing the queries, or your computer polling our server repeatedly. This means using Twitterfall for popular trends is nicer on Twitter than other services.

You can toggle trends on the left, selecting or deselecting as many as you like by simply clicking on them. The list of trends are updated every few minutes right in the page (if you are looking at a trend that is no longer popular, you will receive a message in the stream).

You can also type in custom search queries yourself, and select or deselect these as much as you like by clicking on them. These custom search queries can also be refined by location by using the Geolocation panel (in beta).

You can also view your timeline, as you would normally see it in Twitter. This allows you to follow all of your friends while still using our service. This can be done by logging in on the left and then selecting “Show my Timeline”.

Twitterfall is powered by Erlang, JQuery, Comet Push Technology and Twitter.

Twitter hacked by ‘Iranian Cyber Army’

Popular microblogging site Twitter was briefly shut down overnight, its home page replaced with an image claiming the site had been hacked by the “Iranian Cyber Army.”

The website’s official blog acknowledged the disruption but gave no details as to how the site had been disrupted and who was responsible.

“As we tweeted a bit ago, Twitter’s DNS records were temporarily compromised tonight but have now been fixed,” the site’s co-founder Biz Stone wrote on the blog.

“We will update with more information and details once we’ve investigated more fully,” he added.

Technology blogs including TechCrunch said Twitter went down around 0600 GMT for about an hour.

Visitors to the site at that time reached a page with an image of a green flag under red text reading “Iranian Cyber Army” and “This site has been hacked by Iranian Cyber Army.”

Screengrabs posted on Flickr clearly showed additional text below the image in English.

“USA. Think They Controlling And Managing Internet By Their Access, But They Don’t, We Control And Manage Internet By Our Power, So Do Not Try To Stimulation Iranian Peoples To,” the text said.
