A dash of technology news for you: Twitter, it seems, is going to make some sort of "big announcement" right this very second. We have no idea what it is, but it better be big. Google-buying big. Anyway, noted Silicon Valley techie Robert Scoble writes, "Live streaming from Twitter press conference here. @nickhalstead says announcements are 'huge.'" So, there you have it.

Also, "@ev is posting the topics of his talk live on his Twitter account as he addresses the crowd," reports Laughing Squid.

Update: Twitter is getting a facelift. According to Twitter CEO Evan Williams, "Today we’re launching a new Twitter.com—a faster, easier, and richer way to discover what’s new in your world." Ta-da.
