PC Advisor's top five tweets of the week - 7 April 2011

This week's gems we just had to share

Like many web users out there, PC Advisor is fond of micro-blogging service Twitter. Not only do we get to tell all you lovely web users what we get up to at PCA Towers, but we also love re-tweeting the musings of other web users.

These are our favourite tweets from this week.

Windows TPC

At the end of last month, a stripped-down version of Windows designed by Microsoft for thin clients, was released for customers to download and evaluate. However, a number of readers were having trouble locating and downloading the pre-release beta. We created a step-by-step guide and then told the Twitterverse. "Some readers have been having trouble downloading the pre-release beta of Windows Thin PC. Here's how to do it," read our tweet.

92 PC Advisors and counting

Our editor, MattJEgan, was keen to point out just how long he's been working at PCA Towers. "Working on my 92nd issue of @PCAdvisor. Soon I'll have an issue for every team in the Football League. I might rank them into divisions," he said in a tweet on Monday.

I heart the iPad 2

Meanwhile, MarkHattersley, Editor-in-chief of our sister publication, Macworld UK, revealed his love for the iPad 2.

"Trying to think of a single thing I genuinely dislikes about the iPad 2 for @ipadiphoneuser review... nope, nothing," he tweeted.

Children victims of ID theft

We were so worried by the news that thousands of children have been addled with debt through ID theft, and sometimes it's years before they ever discover their personal information has been stolen we had to tweet to warn web users.

"A worrying report in the US found that 10% of children on a database were being ripped off by ID thieves," said our managing editor, Pricivius.

Reader recommendations

Finally, we couldn't compile a list like this, without giving our readers a mention. We asked your opinions on the best news websites out there and subsequently compiled as list of the ten best. We just had to share this with other Twitter users.

"The top 10 news websites, as recommended by @pcadvisor readers," our tweet read.
