What are people talking about on Twitter

You want to know what people are talking about on Twitter and who is actually doing the talking? Check out This site allows you to search to see what people are saying and doing on Twitter.

We talked a lot about privacy concerns in the last class. This is just one of the many examples that reveal how privacy in the digital environment has all but disappeared. You must assume everything you say or do online can be tracked and monitored. Whether it's good or bad is less of an issue. How we adapt and react is more important.

However it is the adaption to change that is difficult to swallow.
