Twitter_Bird_tweets Twitter has received the spectrum of responses from the public – some hate it, some love it, some are obsessed, others irritated…. but it’s still growing.

Although no one is really clear on the future monetization of Twitter as a company, it’s impressive to see the dramatic usage uptake for things like Psychology experiments via Twitter, and marketing promotions to tweeters that RT. For Nimbuzz, monitoring Twitter-like services allows us to engage and maintain happy customers (we try).

Why do we encourage the usage of it, and what’s in it for you?

In March’s Ambassador Spotlight, we showcased Roger from USA, who loved the Nimbuzz’s location feature on his Nokia N95. He recently sent us a project that we had to share with you – combining 2 engines, a parachute, and a Nimbuzz-equipped mobile phone!

Watch the YouTube video here. He was able to retrieve a few pieces (as you can see below).
