Twitter Gender Data Statistics Infographic

The Gender Differences On Twitter In Data [Infographic]

It’s always been a nagging thought in the back of my mind that women are able to get followers faster and easier than men.  I want to make it very clear here from the very beginning that I mean that in the most informative way.  It’s easy to lean over into the sexist territory here, but that’s not what I am talking about.  I am talking about pure social competence and the ability to know who’s going to follow you back. When I first started ...

Virtual Map: Take A Trip To Italy Right Now

Back in the old days, if you wanted to check out a new city, you either had to read a map or travel there. Now it’s a lot different. I don’t even know how to read a map, and I don’t have to since I have two GPS systems in my car (hey, you never know when one might fail).  Thanks to technology, we can also see the beauty of a city, and exactly how it looks, without traveling there. Of course, nothing will take ...

The 4 Stages Getting Twitter

The 4 Stages Of Understanding Twitter [Infographic]

I remember when I started using Twitter for the first time.  It was after I had checked out a speech by Gary Vaynerchuk on YouTube, and I wanted to know what the hell he was talking about.  Sure enough, there I was, face-to-face with a beginning giant in the social networking world.  I hooked up my own account and started following people I didn’t know, but I liked their status updates.  Soon I started talking to a guy who has since been like a mentor ...

Secret Numbers Of Twitter Followers

Twitter’s Dirty Little Secret… [Infographic]

There are so many things about Twitter that we don’t know, and most certainly shouldn’t know.  What has always amazed me is the weird behavior some people display as soon as a company becomes successful.  It’s like they have an obligation to show and tell exactly everything that is going on behind the scenes.  I mean, look at the monetization issues Twitter supposedly had in the beginning.  People kept saying they had to reveal their plan and so forth within a certain amount of time. ...

Octopus In Bottle In Ocean

The Octopus That Lives In A Beer Bottle

We talk a lot about recycling on Bit Rebels. We only have one planet Earth, and once it’s ruined, we can’t just make another one. We have to each take responsibility and do our individual parts to help the environment thrive. It’s really the only way to make a difference. It really takes the participation of everyone. Even if what you do feels like it’s not helping, if a bunch of people do a bunch of little things, it will add up to a big ...

Twitter Rings: Save Your Favorite Tweet or DM Forever!

Have you ever received a special tweet or DM that you wanted to save forever? I have. When I get a tweet that I want to save, I put it into my “favorites” right away. I have thousands of tweets favorited. I really need to go through them, but that is topic for a different post. When I receive a DM that I want to save, unless I take a screenshot of it, it will soon be lost in the sea of DMs I receive ...

The Evolution Of The Batmobile [Infographic]

It’s interesting to see what Christopher Nolan did with the whole Batman concept.  It went from having dwindling movie goers to pure success.  Sure, much of the success of the movie “Batman: The Dark Knight” was due to the untimely death of Heath Ledger, but the movie was also insanely cool and entertaining.  I remember when I was a little boy, and I watched the Batman series on TV.  Yeah, you know, that really cheesy series where when they fought they had those bubble blurbs ...

StreetFlyer: The Oddest Bicycle Breed You Have Ever Seen

I was a frequent pedal paddler when I was a kid until I got myself into an accident.  After that I have never really found the two wheeled form of transportation to be quite as exciting again.  Well, of course, I have been up in the saddle after that, and even gotten myself one of those high end mountain bikes when I was in my twenties, but I didn’t really use it that much.  When it got stolen, I never cared to really venture into ...

Angry Birds Kids: The REAL Way Of Playing The Game

For all of you who thought we had stopped writing about the Angry Birds game, I am happy to disappoint you.  Well, not really happy, but this thing is just too good to pass up.  I don’t really know what else to say about the game more than that it’s still one of the most purchased and downloaded games in the App Store, and it is likely to stay there for some time.  With the new game Angry Birds Rio coming up, I am sure ...

Ladies That Make Twitter Fun

Twitter’s Top 75 Badass Women

A while back my dear friend @HowellMarketing and I had a conversation about the influential and inspiring women on Twitter. We were both in awe of how many like-minded, talented, hard working, smart women we had become friends with as a result of Twitter. We talked about how we should write an article about such people. Now, a year later, the time is right for such an article. We got together and compiled a list of the women who inspire us on a daily basis ...

Thomas Briggs Mathematical Ink Illustrations

Geek Art: Ink Pen Illustrations Created Using A Math Equation

Hmm… These are very unusual. I can’t decide if it’s brilliant art or the work of someone with a serious case of OCD. They kind of look like big balls of fuzz to me, like something that might come out of my dryer stuck in the lint trap. I was surprised to find out that there is much more going on with these ink pen illustrations than meets the eye. The artist, Thomas Briggs, uses a formula in fact. According to Triangulation Blog, “Briggs uses ...

Why Do We Love Bacon?

Bacon Lovers: Drool Over Your Bacon’s History [Infographic]

As I single-handedly inhaled almost an entire pound of bacon this morning (my Saturday ritual), I got to thinking about it more. Why is it that so many people love bacon? We love it so much that we even top lots of our foods with it now. Menu items including bacon have risen almost 30% in the past few years. Designers and artists are inspired by it and create all sorts of bacon concepts. Why? I suddenly needed to know, and I went on an ...

Star Wars Steampunk: How Star Wars Should Have Been?

It seems we have a steampunk theme today, but that’s not really the truth.  We have just struck a goldmine of awesome steampunk stuff, and we couldn’t keep from sharing it with you.  The more I see of the whole steampunk community, the more I like it.  I wasn’t very fond of the the whole thing a few years ago, but it has grown on me, and today I get held up every time I see something I haven’t seen before.  As a matter of ...
