Today In Twitterverse: TweetsGiving

Twitter’s the micoblogging/messaging service that keeps on giving. New creative uses for the service are being unleashed almost daily.
Here’s today’s entry:, a Twitter celebration of gratitude and giving powered by Epic Change.
TweetsGiving hopes to demonstrate the power of the social web by raising $10,000 in 48 hours to build a classroom in Tanzania.
Pretty dope, if you ask me.
On the not so dope front, there’s a new service called Magpie that autopopulates one’s Twitter feed with paid announcements.
Sitepoint, for one, says it could make $3500 per month from Magpie if it opted to expose its group of 13,000+ followers on Twitter to ads.
