The .XXX TLD Gets First Major Lawsuit

This week has not been a good one for Facebook.  However, it has been a different story for Twitter.  If you have been keeping up with the news headlines you will probably already know that Facebook has been the victim of a rather nasty spam attack involving graphic porn images.  Many users have been disgusted by them – and they have gone straight to Twitter to talk about it.

So is this a new trend in the online social media world?  Do people leave Facebook and discuss various trends and occurrences on its rival social networking site Twitter instead?

It would seem that they do.  Many Twitter users have been discussing the attacks on the micro-blogging site, advising others to steer clear of Facebook – especially where children are concerned – until the site has sorted out the problems.

However, this is not the only time that Twitter has been the chosen venue for those who are disappointed with the service received by Facebook.  Salman Rushdie, the infamous author of “The Satanic Verses”, went to Twitter to vent his frustrations about the treatment he had received from Facebook.  Apparently, the social networking site wanted proof that Salman was who he said he was.  Salman is his middle name and Facebook wanted to list him as Ahmed Rushdie.  Understandably, since he is not famous by this name, Salman was rather annoyed.  Therefore, he went to his followers on Twitter to share his frustration.

You cannot really blame him, can you?
