Twitter @Anywhere "stole" its concept from me!

Twitter @Anywhere "stole" its concept from my Twitsnap!

Yes, last May 2008 I've already built the first @Anywhere using Google App Engine and Google Sites. Unfortunately Google screwed the service after they disallowed uploaded files from being served directly thus the demise of Twitsnap. Now imagine 3 years later, hey here comes Twitter with the "great" idea, yeah right but they forgot to mention it wasn't original. My "initial" check reveals that for 3 years nobody ever created a clone of Twitsnap making me the only holder of "prior-art" claim.

Right now I don't even know what to think, maybe I'll release the entire source of TwitSnap under CC license for start. What should I do next? How can I even match up with a giant like Twitter who owns all our twits?

Please help, post your advise on the comments and thank you in advance!

SMART epic failed my Boobquake sms subscription

"After prominent Iranian cleric Kazem Sedighi said that women’s immodesty increases earthquakes, a Purdue University student named Jen McCreight created a Facebook event called “Boobquake,” calling for the women of the world to wear their most revealing outfits on Monday, April 26.
Sedighi was quoted in the Chicago Tribune saying, “Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.”
The plan, of course, is to embarrass Sedighi if a significant increase in earthquakes does not occur on Monday. The event has more than 177,000 “confirmed” guests and 57,000 “maybes.” There’s also a Facebook page [Explicit Images] that has been liked by more than 37,000 users, and a Twitter hashtag called #boobquake that’s getting several updates per minute. Boobquake has been all over the mainstream media, and merchandise is already rolling out — t-shirts and the like. It’s this weekend’s social media phenomenon." -- more via Mashable

Well my point is I tried to subscribe via SMS via SMART but didn't get any confirmation code. Heck there isn't even an any reply. SMART INTERNATIONAL EPIC FAIL!
