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?

Help me filter my foodtruck twitter feed! I want to get only tweets referencing my street (so I can only see the foodtrucks who will be near me that day) without having to read 8000 other tweets. Iphone or web based please. Bonus points for easy -- I'm a twitter novice. [more inside]

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!

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?

Are there insurgents you can follow on Twitter? In the digital age, many guerrilla groups (revolutionary, separatist or otherwise) have their own websites to publicize their causes. Do they use social media like twitter? And, how would I go about looking for them? (It's an academic question, I'm not making any plans...)
I occasionally pick up Twitter followers that appear to be bogus accounts (e.g. today's follower has stats of 1 tweet, following 640 people, 0 followers). What's up with these accounts? What's the motivation behind them? What are people trying to accomplish?

I tweet for our library.

Other librarians from different departments would like to be logged in while I am logged in and tweet whatever. Thanks for your time.
