bagelhead-1Japan has always produced some of the craziest fads, but I am thinking this one must be one of the craziest of all. Bagelheads. Saline Injections cause swelling that can be molded into pretty much any shape you like.  Japanese club goers fancy the bagel. Because really… nothing is more flattering than bagel popping out of your forehead. 

“The bagelhead bumps can even be shaded blue or green with food coloring and molded into any shape you like.”

There is a misconception that Twitter is for teenagers wanting to know exactly what their friends are doing at any given moment. Twitter is a serious business…Nielsen Wire reported last week that Twitter use increased at an amazing rate of 1,382% in one year.  February 2008 saw 475,000 unique visitors, while February 2009 had 7 million users! That makes Twitter is the fastest growing site in the Member Communities category, followed by Zimbio with a 240% gain and Facebook growing 228%.

What accounts for this incredible growth?  The 35-49 year old demographic is 41% of the site’s audience.  Does this mean people are using it for business?  The majority of people visit while at work – 62%, while 35% access it from home.  

I wonder if Obama and his Twitter use for his campaign from the beginning, had anything to do with this amazing surge in the site’s use.
