PC Advisor's top five tweets of the week - 5 May 2011

Thoughts and musings we just had to share

It's been a busy week in the Twitterverse, and like many fans of the micro-blogging site, we at PC Advisor have been avidly reading the thoughts of others, as well as posting some of our own musings. So here's our five favourites from this week.

Bin-laden crashes Twitter

The news of Osama Bin Laden's death at the beginning of the week sent the web, and Twitter, into a bit of a frenzy.

"If you didn't guess, Twitter broke all traffic records when Osama Bin Laden was killed on Sunday night," we tweeted.

Windows Phone update

Our editor, MattJEgan, helped spread the news that Microsoft finally issued its first Windows Phone security update, after its botched attempt six weeks ago.

"Microsoft issues first Windows Phone security update," he said.

BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900

From the depth of the PC Advisor Test Centre, our reviewers couldn't help but tweet about the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900.

"Very impressive smartphone - 4.5 stars!" we tweeted.

The Facebook spying machine

PCA managing editor Pricivius wanted to point out to Twitter users his admiration his love for Julian Assange.

"I love this guy. Julian Assange calls Facebook an 'appalling spying machine'," he tweeted.

Location tracking

Finally, we were impressed when Andyfoulsham urged web users to vote in one of our polls.

"I suggest that people cast their votes in the PCAdvisor poll to show Apple, Google & the like that location tracking is not wanted!" he said.
