Another twitter revolution on the horizon?

So according to GeorgianDaily.com, it is predicted that by the end of 2010, more than a million Russians will be signed up with Twitter and that political implications are inevitable. The article goes on to highlight one twitter feed in particular, and I would like to highlight it as well.

Compromat.org was forced of .ru last year, but continues to report on the misdeeds of Russian leaders, and now, it has a twitter feed: http://twitter.com/anticompromat. It is completely in Russian. I suggest you all check it out. It lists cases I had never heard about in the international press. Very informational. Go Twitter!

You may be cofusing compromat.ru (Sergey Gorshkov, still in existence) with anticompromat.ru (Vladimir Pribylovsky, seems to have migrated to .org). The tweets seem interesting in any case. :-)

Thanks Kalle.

One of Russia's best additions to world language though: "Kompromat."

Thank you very much for the correction. I must blame my source though: the Georgian Daily. I should have known better and checked their sources :)
