- Such as it is. Whether or not there is a nascent pan-Euro conversation was a big topic of conversation, and some preliminary mapping from the company Linkfluence suggests that the circles of discussion in Europe tend to cluster around the countries in which they take place.
- Hope is fading fast. A slight tweak to Shepard Fairey's iconic image and the message is completely different.
- The case for video games.
- Twitter lists haven't really seem to have caught on, but at these some folks are making use of the ability to group together Twitter users according to a theme. The White House has made a list of the tweet feeds of its brothers and sisters in government. DM them if you know of someone or something they've missed.

You can find these opinions by searching for cases (like Planned Parenthood v. Casey), or by topics (like desegregation) or other queries that you are interested in."
- ActBlue ramps up its Twitter tie ins. Pretty soon, you'll be able to donate just by picturing the face of your chosen candidate and blinking twice.
- And finally, the truth comes out: fiber optics isn't a real thing.
