Thanks. While these services are not my cup of tea, whenever Twitter
is mentioned, please note there's an open-source alternative:

 http://identi.ca   (identica)

Which uses the FOSS software:

 http://laconi.ca/trac (laconica)

(e.g: any person/group may set up their own private group service
 using the same tools/technologies as the "big-boys" without being
 second-class citizens that get "permission" to use some API's at
 the choice of the current social networking hot-shot).

The lecture itself sound very interesting, have fun,

it, then by definition you're not smart enough to debug it."
