Recently, ABS-CBN has re-launched its famous house, the PINOY BIG BROTHER HOUSE. I was actually thinking of how more can this work for the Filipino audience, there must be a big twist to it. A friend told me that in UK, the Big Brother House will no longer open for it has reached its maximum audience tolerance, meaning it has had many seasons already. While another country in Europe launch its Big Brother Village, same concept, only that it’s not just a house they move into, but a village that even has a market in it.
Same goes with one of social media’s new athlete, codename: twitter. Twitter is one of the speediest way of sharing ones thought to your friends, to your network, or even to the world. Just a few weeks ago, I’ve ‘doubled up’ one of Twitter‘s ‘gears’ that is the tweetdeck. This might be new to some, but as for others including myself, it has been a way of making tweeting simpler, easier, and more organized. I remember the first time I saw this application from one of my college friends, and I can’t help but resist because of its overwhelming appearance, but just so I know I have been tweeting the tweetdeck way.
One of Kuya’s ‘double up’ is having twin brothers enter his house, and not just one, but two pairs of twins. They are JP, the Jetsetter Dad ng Quezon City, and his twin brother JM, the Delightful Dad ng Quezon City. Together with Toffi, the Basket Bolero ng Rizal, and his twin brother Kenny, the Joker Jock ng Rizal. It was quite amusing how these twins were revealed, and as well as how these twins would function inside the Big Brother House.
In the same way, Twitter ‘doubles up’ at par with PBB, it allows users to make use of not just one, or two, or three, or four accounts simultaneously and keeping track of all our networks at the same time in one application. I actually am using five multiple accounts for five different purposes connecting to five different networks all at the same time. One tweet to all, having the option of choosing which among your accounts will carry your tweet by easily clicking on the username you wish to use.
BUT kuya’s surprises didn’t end there, the biggest revelation unfolded, his house is totally DOUBLED UP! two Big Brother Houses functioning at the same time! And that the two pairs of twins were divided putting one sibling on one house and the twin on the other. What a twist! The ultimate goal: to maintain one’s identity from one house to the other EVEN if they switch positions. I am actually doubting the ‘basketball’ twins if they can survive this task for one of them is taller than the other. But to tweetdeck’s double up? no doubt it can maintain your posts identically to both Twitter and Facebook! yes, my favorite social networking site, facebook.
Indeed! even MySpace can be simultaneously updated through the tweetdeck.
These are two double ups that I have encountered these past few days. PINOY BIG BROTHER double up, and the new and better TWEETDECK.
I can’t say that I am a fan of PBB, but let’s see what happens inside the house. And hey, I won’t be surprised if one day Kuya is already tweeting his way to our own homes.
