I think the Murdochpocalypse may have broken Twitter. This is both frustrating, and hilarious.

Anyone know if there are any firefox/chrome extensions that build the fancy new Google black strip page-topper thing (like the one at the top of this page) into the browser, allowing it to be displayed on non-Google web pages?

Earlier today The Channel 5 show, The Wright Stuff tweeted that one of their topics of discussion for tomorrow's show was: "BROOKS BADGERED COS SHE’S A BABE? Rebekah may be backed by Murdoch, but would everyone be calling for her head on a stick if she was a man?"

I took exception to this, and sent a series of tweets, which I've replicated below.

Oh for fucks sake. Courtesy of @5WrightStuff the inevitable 'Brooks is being persecuted because she's a woman' bollocks is being rolled out. She's not being persecuted because she's a woman. She's being persecuted because she's a vile soulless cunt who is personally responsible for a massive breakdown in trust between communities with her decade long 'nonce of the week' campaign.

She's being persecuted because she tried to send a journalist out to a press conference on 12th September 2001 dressed as Harry Potter. She's being persecuted because she has threatened to 'destroy' anyone who spoke out against her and her cunt employers. She's being persecuted because 200 people lost their jobs so she could keep hers.

But most importantly she's being persecuted because she presided over an organisation that engaged in an extraordinary amount of criminal activity.

NOT because she's a woman.

Needless to say, I really quite dislike the woman.

Anyone been reading the new Rocketeer comics IDW are putting out. I've just finished issue two, and I'm still not entirely sure what to make of it. There's definitely a nostalgic appeal, they look and feel like Dave Steven's original comics, but I'm not sure if that's the only reason I'm enjoying them.

Thoughts?

Anyone got the link to suggest a feature for Google+?

Let's see if I can start something interesting:

Haven't tried dropping a video into the stream yet. This seemed appropriate.
