CHICAGO+BIKES+PARTYING=TWITTER NAME

I'm starting a Twitter account to help promote Chicago/Midwest cycling events, mostly to messy bike kids who like to ride, drink, and have fun. Alleycats, bar nights, bar rides, cyclocross, fundraisers, Messenger Prom, Bicycle Film Festival, Cycle Messenger World Championship, trick jams, etc. Help me think of a @name! [more inside]

Congrats, You're our Billionth Follower...I think

Social media tracking: my organization's Twitter and Facebook pages are nearing milestone numbers of followers, and to help push us over the hump I'd like to do a giveaway to the round number follower. How can I track who is the X-th person to follow us on Twitter and the Y-th person to "Like" us on Facebook?

What do I need to do to bring my website into the age of Facebook and Twitter?

Facebook and Twitter are passing me by. It's no longer enough to know how to rank very well in Google, by providing good material that people want to read and that is easily indexed by Google. Now, we're told, Google is passé. Small businesses must switch to using Facebook and Twitter to reach their audiences. But how? [more inside]

Tumblr themes with Facebook/Twitter buttons

Twitter filter: Why does Twitter widget "die"?

Dumb question here, especially coming from a web developer ... But I use a Twitter widget on occasion on the front page of the site I work on. We'll be using it again Election night from about 4pm through to the wee morning hours. The widget is the standard-variety Twitter-supplied widget (http://twitter.com/widgets). The problem is, this widget always seems to "die" at some point during its use. That is, it will display tweets just fine for an hour or two (maybe even three, if I'm lucky), then it stops displaying tweets altogether, showing just the styled box, completely devoid of tweets. Search as I have, google-fu has failed me. Can't seem to come up with an explanation that seems reasonable to my supervisors. Any ideas?

AOL incompatible with Twitter?

Help, please. I cannot get any page at all at Twitter to load -- it just kicks me back to whatever page I was on previously. This started exactly when I installed the latests AOL Aim program on 9.15. I have updated my firefox browser, erased cache and cookies, and made sure JavaScript was enabled, and updated Java, but still no dice. Any ideas? I cannot even get to the Twitter help page or log in. Thank you so much.

Which news sites use Twitter well, and how do they do it?

Have you seen any sites -- mainstream media or other -- that use Twitter in an innovative way relating to breaking news? I'm especially interested in ways that readers participate, but would also look at ways the sites get the news out to their users. Examples might be the site asks readers to tweet reactions to an earthquake from the scene, or to tweet their picks for an upcoming football game, and the site then uses this information in some way. (Facebook and other social media innovations are also of interest, but mostly looking for Twitter info.) Thanks!

Is it wrong to follow/friend a job applicant?

I'm hiring, and in addition to interviewing, checking references (official and un-), etc., I'd like to see how candidates are using Twitter, Facebook, and/or Tumblr. Facility with this stuff isn't a primary requirement of the job, but it's helpful; I also think it's a good way to gauge a candidate's judgement and to see how they manage their public face. On the other hand, it feels like following or friending is weird, or possibly an invasion of privacy. Is it?
