Twitter to Control “Possibly Sensitive” Tweet Links

Twitter will be adding a new streaming API that would let users flag their contents as possibly sensitive.

Late Thursday, social site – Twitter – added a new feature to its system, allowing users to identify whether a tweet link is “possibly sensitive” or not. The company announced that with their just-out Twitter streaming API field, which is capable of flagging warnings, Tweeps could avoid clicking any discerning contents that are not appropriate for their age or workplace.

Although the company disclosed that they’ve just added it for testing purposes, the said feature is not yet working.

Perhaps this new Twitter feature is a good way of controlling the contents produced in the social site. By this, parents would never have to worry every time their children use Twitter, since they would be prevented from clicking inappropriate links.

Digsby Now Supports Group Chat

Written on August 08, 2010 by Japhet Writ

At long last, Digsby has thought of adding Group Chat to its features. Now, users can enjoy talking to a lot of people at once. But that's not all! There's the new LinkedIn and MySpace API that you can use to like or dislike comments or stream. Digsby is really building up its interface.

A long over due group chat support feature is now included in the new version of Digsby. The update also includes an overhauled LinkedIn interface and MySpace’s like/dislike. The Social IM Client is taking advantage of LinkedIn’s revamped API. This API allow users to comment and “like” status updates. The MySpace interface, on the other hand, adds “Like!” and “Dislike!” buttons in the stream. It’s a workaround Digsby has to do though, since MySpace’s API doesn’t support liking or disliking.

The biggest change of the IM Client, by a mile, is the Group Chat. Users can start mass conversation in AIM, Google Talk, ICQ, Yahoo Instant Messenger, MSN and Jabber. Just click the list button at the top of the IM window, or just hit “New Group Chat” in the menu. After succeeding to gain one million users last year, Digsby has been hyping up it social media integration by creating a Twitter client and supporting Facebook, LinkedIn and MySpace.
