Twitter the online Social networking and microblogging service gets its first huge facelift. This is the first such facelift since it was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey and launched that July.
Although Twitter had a few tweaks to “Larry the Bird” named after Larry Bird of the NBA’s Boston Celtics fame and launched its third logo redesign,which replaced Larry the Bird with an icon simply named as the “Twitter Bird” and became the sole logo.
With over 500 million active users (June 2012), twitter generates over 340 million tweets daily and handling over 1.6 billion search queries everyday. It has become a part of social life.

This new feature is visible to anyone who visits your profile from a Mobile,Tablets or Web. There also new tabs in the top bar where you can Discover latest trends and visit your profile with a click.
With the widespread of Social Media Marketing in the Middle east region, this upgrade shall benefit the upcoming and existing brands on Twitter can make full use of this feature to Promote themselves or their Products to their followers. Brands Such as the Banks, Telecoms and Airlines which are now expanding towards the social atmosphere in the region shall make the best use of “Header” to reach out to their followers on twitter and we shall get to see some great advertising.
You can now show more to your followers on Twitter about yourself than just Profile Picture and the changes can be made either from you iPad or Android or Twitter.com itself.
Not only this, but there were other changes aswell including photo streams that are now below anyone’s recent Tweets on iPhone, Android and iPad, and can be swiped through to see the photos of other users.

“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” These famous words were uttered by the great Neil Armstrong when he first stepped on the Moon As commander of the Apollo 11 mission on July 20, 1969.
Armstrong, who turned 82 on August 5, 2012, underwent surgery on August 7, 2012, to relieve blocked coronary arteries.
Before becoming an astronaut Armstrong served in the Korean War for United States Navy. After serving as a test pilot at NACA he joined the NASA Astronaut Corps in 1962 and was the Command Pilot on his first space flight onboard Gemini 8 mission in 1966.
He was on the Apollo program since the fire on Apollo 1 on January 27, 1967. Armstrong was a backup commander for Apollo 8 which had orbited the Moon. He then was given the honour to command Apollo 11 (EAGLE) as a Commander which landed on Moon with the first humans on July 20, 1969, 20:17:40 UTC. “The Eagle has landed” . He was accompanied by Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” E. Aldrin, Jr.
The first Moon Step/walk which was actually scheduled after a crew rest was moved earlier in the evening upon Armstrong’s request. he uttered “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” when he stepped on the moon and Lunar Module Pilot Aldrin also joined him .
On their return to earth they had to use a part of a pen to set the ignition sequence for lift as they had broken the switch while getting back into the LM.
This was his last space flight which had a Total EVA time of 2 hours and 31 minutes. he left NASA in 1971 and took up a teaching position in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Cincinnati.
Information on Facebook is becoming a major factor in marriage conflicts and is increasingly being used as a source of evidence in divorce cases. In 2011, Facebook was cited as a reason for a third of divorces (Divorce-Online).
The most common reasons Divorce-Online found cited as evidence were; inappropriate messages to members of the opposite sex, separated spouses posting nasty comments about each other, and facebook friends reporting spouse’s behaviour.
The greater availability of information online through social media has created a variety of problems for relationships at every level. Conflict caused by embarrassment, jealousy, false assumptions, and stalker-like behaviour, are some of the social disasters that can result from the misuse of social media. Check out the article below for more information and how to avoid the major issues social media causes relationships.
