DeskAway is an online project collaboration Web app by Indian entrepreneurial siblings Sahil and Sitanshi Parikh. It’s a lightweight application that allows small and large teams to work together on projects, with built-in features like time tracking, delegation, file-sharing and to-do list management.

It recently gained a new feature that combines internal project management with social networking on sites like Facebook and Twitter. Announced on the official blog on Tuesday, the new feature allows project owners or task assignees to share tasks with their social circle using a short URL that can be generated on request.

Anyone who then visits that URL can verify themselves using their Facebook or Twitter credentials and leave a comment on the task. It’s a great way to get feedback on that new design you just created or help with a blog entry that is about to go up. The company has tried to quash all doubts that may arise about this feature in an extensive FAQ.

Unfortunately, however, the feature is severely restricted because it does not allow any user to enter more than a single comment. In what could be construed as a somewhat misguided move, the people at DeskAway have tried to counter potential spam on the site by imposing this limitation.

When I pointed out to Sahil that it also hampered the ability of project owners to have a discussion about the tasks with their friends, by disallowing the back-and-forth that is required for it, he told me that they “decided it would be a good way to avoid one person leaving a lot of comments and possibly spamming the system”. But he was also quick to point out that comments could already be edited and that they would “learn how people used this feature, take feedback and iterate for the better”.

Besides the new additions described above, the Web app has a whole host of existing features like the ability to work on multiple projects simultaneously, project history with RSS support, milestones, to-do lists, calendaring, time sheets and a built in discussion board, wiki and email service. It allows easy export of all the data hosted on it and has a bunch of reporting options. It also integrates with popular Web services like FreshBooks, Google Apps and OpenID.

DeskAway has Web-based mobile versions of its app specifically tailored for the iPhone and for other platforms like Android, BlackBerry and others. The service offers three pricing tiers, starting at $ 25 per month for startups, $ 49 for small businesses and $ 99 for large enterprises. A 30-day free trial is available for all plans, after which you have to whip out that credit card.

Twitter has added a ‘Post Tweets to Facebook’ button in the user profiles section that will allow you to quickly and easily link your Twitter account to your Facebook account. The button, when clicked, will ask you to enter your Facebook credentials and then link the two accounts, allowing your Tweets to cross-post to Facebook as status updates.

Once you’ve linked the two accounts, you’ll see the space change to reflect that. Then, you can click the ‘Post Tweets to Facebook option to have your Tweets post there as well. there is a note the @mentions and @replies will not be sent, only ‘original’ Tweets.

Once you post a new Tweet with the option enabled, you’ll see it appear right in your Facebook status feed, with a clear indicator that it came from Twitter.

This is a nice additional option for those of us that like to post across both Twitter and Facebook at once. This has, of course, been possible for quite a while using third-party apps and plugins, but this is official support right within Twitter, which shows a rare moment of cooperation between the two social giants.

What do you think, is this something you’ll use? Or do you consider your Twitter messages just for Twitter. I guess it boils down to whether you share distinctly different things in each place.

Thanks to Chad Catacchio for the tip.

Twitter Just Got the Respect it Deserves

If you’re one to check your analytics on a daily basis you may have noticed a pretty sharp increase in referrals from Twitter’s “” domains. We noticed it almost immediately on Wednesday but naively didn’t pay much attention.

A few days later and with the domain suddenly our number no 1 domain source of referral traffic, it was time to pay some attention to exactly what had happened.

What Happened

In the simplest of terms, from last Wednesday, all links (longer than 20 characters) posted on or any Twitter client have been wrapped with a URL. This means all analytics tools are picking up ‘’ as the referrer as opposed to a particular twitter client (Twitterrific, Tweetdeck etc.) or just

Twitter’s public explanation for wrapping all links in a URL is to protect users from malicious sites and scams. The side effect, and Twitter definitely knows this, is that analytics tools will now categorise all traffic from both and all Twitter clients as traffic coming from Twitter. Whereas before it would be divided amongst all the various twitter clients (usually just as “direct traffic”) and specific pages on – never directly from the tweet.

If you haven’t already, I suggest you check which domain has sent you the most traffic since Wednesday – compare Twitter’s vs. vs. StumbleUpon for example – I think many of you will now find Twitter ranks number ONE.

What This Means

Frankly, a lot of things.

Firstly, in the eyes of the media, Twitter is a truly influential source of traffic

Twitter will now be recognised as a hugely influential source of social media traffic. Where as before, because it was only possible to track traffic coming from Twitters web interface, it was impossible to truly measure the impact Twitter brought through referrals. Going forward, you’ll begin to see the influence the entire Twitter ecosystem (and specific tweets) have on the traffic to your site. StumbleUpon and Facebook have duked it out for king of social media traffic but for many sites, that may have just changed… (see next point)

Facebook and StumbleUpon, the battle is on on.

Until now, Facebook and StumbleUpon have commonly been known as the biggest drivers of social media traffic. With this change, my money’s on that changing drastically. Make no bones about it, this is a genius move from Twitter.

Brands and Businesses

For brands and businesses that have yet to see the true value of Twitter, expect to be impressed. Twitter just stepped up and demanded to be noticed. If you weren’t convinced of the physical traffic Twitter drives, you should definitely notice it now.

Twitter might finally launch its analytics product

With this in place, it’s very possible we’ll finally see Twitter’s analytics product launch. And with that, a great way for Twitter to monetize. and social media analytics tools

This also means tools like who market themselves on the analytics they provide will need to step up their game and attempt to provide a far more improved service. One of the benefits of using was being able to track traffic from your tweets – in real time. Now, with, that isn’t necessary and you’ll be able to track those links using tools like Clicky (that offers real time tracking). Where there is serious potential for and other analytics tools however is in the next point…

Narrowing down which specific tweet brought the traffic and who tweeted it.

You can also now quickly discover which specific tweet – sent by whom – brought that surge of traffic. Doing that before was a really cumbersome process. Simply grab the URL from your analytics, e.g. this one: and search Twitter with it:

This means the ability to detect which tweets and Twitter users specifically sent you the most traffic, a smart area for an analytics tool to venture into. Twitter itself has said “Link wrapping provides an opportunity to learn how users engage with links contained in tweets. After the full rollout is complete and our analytics has crystallized, we’ll be offering a set of APIs that developers can leverage to enrich their applications with gathered data.”

That sort of data is invaluable to publishers and other sites alike to track down who their most influential link sharers/tweets actually are.

Starting to see why this is a game changer and perhaps more importantly,why Twitter just got the respect it deserves?

Warning: You should know, as useful as this extension is, the slimy developers decided it would be a good idea to auto post a recommendation of the extension to your G+ page the moment you install the extension – without your permission. It will do the same when you connect your twitter/Facebook too. The extension works beautifully but be prepared to delete the autoposts immediately after if you don’t want to spam your friends.

There are a number of extensions and tools out there that attempt to make it easier to cross post between Google+, Facebook and Twitter but perhaps none quite as flexible as Publish sync for Google+ & facebook.

The extension makes it possible to post from either Google+, Facebook, Twitter or Plurk and cross post to all (or just a selection) of the others. It unfortunately doesn’t support Facebook Fan Pages but does support crossposting to specific G+ Circles which is nifty – particularly without a public API.

It currently works seamlessly with text and links; video and images only work when cross posting from Google+. Grab it here. And for more quality Google+ resources check our Mother of All Google+ Resources Lists and this Tumblr.

We received multiple reports earlier today from people who have received direct messages from friends on Twitter asking whether it was them pictured in a photo – with a link included.

We refrained from covering the story in the hope that Twitter would have gained control of the situation but hours later, they are still rife and spreading fast.

The messages might say “is this you in the video?” or “is this you in this picture?” and you’ll be taken to a phishing site looks that looks exactly like with a slight tweak on the URL (see screenshot below).

Needless to say, DON’T type in your username and password. If you use Chrome, the browser should warn you before you visit the site that it may be a phishing site.

Twitter is aware of the issue with Del Harvey, in charge of Twitter’s Safety team, saying that Twitter is resetting the passwords of users who it believes have been hit by the phishing attack and users should read this for more information as to what to do if you feel your account has been compromised.

Twitter has begun amending its messaging policy for Verified Accounts, allowing celebrities and brands to receive Direct Messages without having to follow the sender, it was revealed on Monday.

News came via Nabeel Ziyaan, who noticed that the requirement to follow a user to receive a Direct Message had now been removed:

Now, Twitter verified accounts {Brands} can let followers Direct Message without following back.

Ziyaan’s claim was backed up Indian mobile operator Tata DOCOMO, an alliance with Japanese telecom major NTT DOCOMO and the Tata Group. The company tweeted from its official account to alert its followers of the news:

Now to DM us all you need to do is follow @tatadocomo. No need for us to follow you first. Tested and its working.

The relaxation is aimed at providing Twitter users that have large follower counts with a private system with which they can receive a personal message without having to go through the tedious process of following the user, asking them to direct message them, and then unfollow the user after it has been sent.

Twitter has yet to announce the feature but it appears to have silently rolled out over the past few days. Fans of brands or celebrities will welcome the news but we aren’t so sure the celebrities or staff running these popular accounts will be happy to receive an incoming flood of personal messages.

With the 2011 Thai General Election fast approaching, the nation is gearing up to embrace what could herald a new chapter for the country, and revitalize its democracy after more than 5 years of political crisis.

But news has emerged that Thais could face a stint in jail and a hefty fine if they’re caught commenting on any of the candidates or the parties on Twitter – or any other digital channel – in the build up to the election.

Polling stations are open from 8am until 3pm (local time) on Sunday 3rd July, but the blanket ban is in place from 6pm on Saturday until midnight on Sunday, with 100 police officers in place to check that the ban is adhered to. Anyone caught breaking the ban face up to six months in prison and a 10,000 baht ($ 330) fine.

Suthiphon Thaveechaiyagarn, Secretary-General of the Election Commission, said:

“Any candidates and their supporters will face jail time if they are caught campaigning on social media websites on the evening before the July 3 election.”

But the ban extends beyond Twitter and social networks into the wider digital media sphere too, with texts and forwarding emails also apparently prohibited.

Police spokesman, Prawut Thavornsiri, said:

“There will be a unit of more than 100 officers to monitor this. If we can track the origin of (an online message) right away, we will block the site and make an arrest. But if the sites are registered overseas and we can’t check the origin, we’ll first block it and ask the IP (Internet Protocol) providers for further investigation.”

Some have suggested that the ban could potentially be used to disqualify winning candidates if it’s found that someone has been aided by online campaigning during the blackout period.

Twitter in particular has proven to be a popular tool for social and political campaigning, as it allows users to share and access news and information in real-time as events happen. And it also affords users anonymity letting them express opinions and divulge sensitive information without the fear of  being reprimanded.

It will be difficult to see exactly how the law could be effectively enforced in a country with almost 70m people, almost 20m of which are online with 8m using Facebook alone.

In October 2010, a small application called Firesheep had Internet users quivering in fear that their social accounts could be hacked instantly, with a small Firefox extension able to hijack Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr and sessions whist they were connected to unsecured wifi.

With Firesheep requiring a desktop computer to steal a users cookies and authenticate them as any user browsing on the same wireless network, the potential for attacks was rather limited. However, an enterprising developer has taken the same concept and shoehorned the technology into an Android application called FaceNiff, providing a user with the ability to take over Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts simply by joining a network and running the app.

FaceNiff requires a rooted Android handset, a barrier for a few but with a wealth of information on the Internet, easily achieved by many. Securing a network doesn’t seem to help either, as the application can snoop information on WEP, WPA and WPA2 WiFi networks.

The application reinforces the need for all social networks to employ SSL encryption on their services, stopping tools like FaceNiff from working in seconds. Both Facebook and Twitter have such an option embedded within the settings but many users are unaware of the option.

The app is meant to be a proof of concept and only used for educational purposes but has been confirmed to work on HTC Desire CM7, Original Droid/Milestone CM7, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, Samsung Galaxy S, Nexus 1 CM7, HTC HD2, LG Swift 2X, LG Optimus Black and LG Optimus 3D.

The APK file is limited so it can only be used to hijack 3 social profiles. Despite this, developer Bartosz Ponurkiewicz says that users can donate via PayPal for an unlocked version of the application.
