Happy Twitter Valentines Day

Thursday, February 14th, 2008

The tech-dudes at Twitter planned a special Valentines Day surprise. It caused so much traction that I saw the server breakin’ every now and then.

So, what did they do? Ha! They made it fun to send some love around! A great idea, I love ‘m for that, one can never send around too much love these days!

How did they pull that off? Well, whenever you send a reply (via @username ) with the message <3 (the IM-shortcut for love). This text shortcut then turns into a heart in your Twitter timeline!

Nice one dudes! Let’s spread those hearts!

PS: it was nice to receive some love from iJustine:

…she’s still not following me on Twitter though. 🙁
