How many videos does it take?

In January, we logged an enormous number of video views on our sites… in excess of 30 million views. We were steadily rising though the “most watched channel” ranks before we were yanked from YouTube. (We’re working to resolve that.)

It’s pretty clear that we’ll be embarking on our own user-generate video system with another partner. Given our huge volume, it will be a pretty large challenge. Wish us luck!

#in140 – The world according to Twitter

A little side project that’s got me very excited. I’ve been trying to define all sorts of things using less than 140 characters. I’m logging these under the hashtag #in140 until we launch a centralized site.

Here are some examples:

Viagra: The little blue wonder-drug of the 90s that let impotent men to cause headaches in their formerly headache-free sig. others.

Linsey Lohan: A female celeb whose yo-yoing mass is punctuated by her ever-present oversized boobs, alcohol addiction & bad judgement

Chicago Cubs fan: Hopeless devotees 2 a lost cause whose love of a stadium n losing is charming @ best, bat-shit crazy in playoffs.

Brokeback Mt: 2 non-gay dudes go 2 gayest named mt. ever n learn dey r teh gay. Hot priv. gay love ensues. Str8 guys cry on viewing.

Amy Winehouse: An ironic crack-whore singer from UK who constantly amazes the public by managing to staying alive and out of jail.

Krispy Kreme Donuts: A southern US export created to kill all diabetics on contact. Also delicious if hot out of boiling animal fat.

Douchebag: An ape-like male creature w/ a fetish for tiny shirts to show man-nipples and overexposure in tanning lotion n hair spray.

Would you like a Twitterburger with that?

After my own company, it’s the thing I think about the most. So now, I Can Has Cheezburger? has integrated Twitter into our platform.

Here’s a quick video on how that Twitter-Burger integration works:

Son of a Tweet?

If you can’t beat’em, rename’em.

I love TwitPic. It’s a simple, useful service with a real nice guy founder (@noaheverett).

When we acquired TwittyPic, we felt the same way about it. The two services are unrelated, but when TwitPic began to really take off, we wanted to make sure that our service wouldn’t cause confusion, or vice versa.

So we took the opportunity to change the name of the site to: SonOfATweet.com. You read that right: Son Of A Tweet. Same great service, new funny name.

Yes, it’s unusual. It’s weird. And that’s just the way you’re likely to remember it.
