William, Kate And Harry Join Twitter Club

The British monarchy has taken a new step in their approach to social networks. After the end of last October, Queen Elizabeth II, 88, had herself sent first tweet during the inauguration of an exhibition dedicated to information technology in the Science Museum in London.

The name Kensington Palace, referring to the palace where they reside, the new digital profile of the two sons of Prince Charles and wife of the eldest son Prince William, Kate Middleton, will serve to keep updated the followers about their important activities . Who knows maybe we will find them on the the famous skout app.

Other members of the British Royal family who have profiles on the popular social network are Prince Andrew (with over 63,000 followers), Princess Beatrice (26,800 followers), Mike Tindall (married to Zara Phillips, granddaughter of Isabel II, who tweets mostly about rugby sport) and Peter and Autumn Phillips (the eldest grandson of Queen, son of Princess Anne, and his wife).

Despite being one of the monarchies with a more traditional image and somewhat moth-eaten, the British Royal family has realized the power of social networks. Other members of the British Royal family who have profiles on the popular social network are Prince Andrew (with over 63,000 followers), Princess Beatrice (26,800 followers), Mike Tindall (married to Zara Phillips, granddaughter of Isabel II, who tweets mostly about rugby sport) and Peter and Autumn Phillips (the eldest grandson of Queen, son of Princess Anne, and his wife).

Abandoned Seal Pup Now an Internet Star

If you’re looking for a reason to smile today, here it is. In August, a Russian photographer noticed an odd looking seal alone on a beach. It seems the animal, who had been born with albinism, was rejected by her family and left alone to fend for herself. A seal pup so young would struggle to survive alone under the best of circumstances, and this pup had additional problems. Her albinism has left her with beautiful blue eyes that, while pretty to look at, leave her almost blind. This issue would have further complicated her survival.

Fortunately, the photographer was able to scoop her up and rescue her. This once unwanted seal pup is now called Nafanya and is the star attraction in a Russian aquarium and even has her own webcam. The webcam feed runs only in the afternoon, which is 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Eastern time, but this little cutie is certainly worth staying up for.

Are you going to pick that up, officer?

When an officer is confronted for doing something that he writes others a ticket for, he can’t seem to handle the truth. Two men decided to turn the tables on an officer when he littered. Littering is usually against the law in most states, even if it does only warrant a citation. When the cop was questioned about what he did, he got mad. He even told the men who made accused him that they could try to do something if they wanted.

Some officers think that they can get by with anything they want whether it’s against the law or not. They think that they are above the law just because they are in a government car and wear a badge. If those two men would have littered, then they would have probably been given a ticket as soon as they were seen in the act.

Nancy Grace Being Sued by ‘Selfie Stalker’ for Defamation

Television personality Nancy Grace is being sued for defamation by a Denver man she intimated could be a ‘serial killer’ even after police discovered he was innocent of any wrongdoing.

When told by Denver police soon after it aired that her story of the so-called ‘selfie stalker’ was not based in fact, Grace still continued to air it. In his lawsuit filed this week according to Andrew Heiberger, Ben Seibert says Grace’s story destroyed his good name and he expects recompense.

The story began when Nancy Grace ran a story on her national TV show accusing Seibert of breaking into a woman’s home and taking a ‘selfie’ on her cell phone.

The incident took place when a still unknown man allegedly entered a Denver woman’s home while she was getting her children ready for bed. She told police she thought he may have taken a photograph of himself on her cell phone before leaving.

Seibert’s photo was later found on the woman’s phone, but it was soon discovered to be a photograph taken from his Facebook page. Grace, however, continued to air his photograph even when she was informed by police it had nothing to do with the case.

According to Seibert, Grace didn’t check facts before she aired her story as, if she had, she would have discovered he was not in Denver but was working in California when the break-in occurred.

This isn’t the first time Nancy Grace has been sued by someone she has used incorrect information against. In fact, another lawsuit against Grace has just been settled only days ago by Kennedy clan member Michael Skakel.

Grace has also been linked to two suicides of people she interviewed and later accused of various criminal acts. The two, in separate incidences, later killed themselves.
