Twitter Game: Guess The Song (Answers)

Last year on Twitter, I started to randomly tweet little puzzles for my followers to play along with, which they did receive a good reception. The main one I used to play was #SWYS ("Say What You See"), where I'd post a picture that has various items on it and you have to guess what the word is. (For example: I'll post a picture of a muscle man, next to an image of a bow and arrow ... and the answer would be? Yes, the cider drink, Strongbow). Besides the Say What You See games, I also did try a... [read more]

Twitter Retweet Goofs

I only posted two days ago about checking your sources. I bet these people wished they did now after a week of retweet (RT) based goofs, where one tweeter would ask a celebrity to RT their picture of a certain "family member" - but instead of including a real image of said family member, they decide to use various "other" images.

As you can see below, a load have fooled them and they've gone on to retweet them - however after various replies like "he's britains most notorious paedophile", etc.. the said retweets were un-retweeted. Here's... [read more]

Why Do People Buy Twitter Followers?

Why Do People Buy Twitter Followers

If you've got an account on Twitter, you would've surely noticed by now that quite a fair few accounts seem to be sporting over 10,000 followers, yet they're only following about a fifth of them and that they aren't an actor, singer, politician, etc..

Now a majority of these said "followers" will actually be fake accounts, because if you're tech savvy enough, you would know that there's a slight flaw in Twitters mobile website which allows a simple bot (or most people just pay someone to do it) to register loads of fake accounts,... [read more]

dhIMG Twitter v1.1 Released


VERSION 1.6 NOW RELEASED

dhIMG TwitterThe previous version of dhIMG Twitter that I released ran into a few problems when Twitter changed the way it shows images, which caused the original program to not fetch any images.

This has now been sorted in this version, so you should now be able to download your images once again.

If a similar problem does arise again, just give me a heads up and I'll try and get around to fixing it as soon as I possibly can.

You can download the latest version from:

Moan About Twitter's Mute Feature

Twitter Mute

It's now been just over a month since Twitter released its "Mute" feature and I feel it's time to now moan about.

Firstly, the feature is pretty much pointless. Muted people can STILL follow you and STILL interact with you, '@' replies and '@' mentions STILL appear in your notifications from whoever you've muted - so if they're constantly messaging you publicly, you'll STILL get them. Muted people can still send you DM's and all their previous tweets are still all shown all over your main feed.

Secondly, I personally haven't muted a single person and I really... [read more]
