Traffic twitterers and pig spotters

Posted on May 5, 2011

There are quite a number of different twitter accounts which can help you keep up to speed with what is happening on the roads around the country. Following a collection of these accounts really can make your life a whole lot more comfortable and relieve a lot of frustrations.

I have created a page listing my favourites. Since I am based in KZN most of the ones listed are from that region. Please feel free to leave more in the comments and I will add them to the list to keep it up to date regularly. For your convenience you can find a combined twitter list here :!/jjza/traffic

The full list is here :

      Any idea what the limits are on the size of BBM Groups and how well they scale? I have heard anecdotally that once you have more than a few hundred users the Blackberry’s who are members of the groups start to slow down to a crawl and become virtually unusable. Not sure who true this is but have seen some Blackberry groups moving over to Twitter as it seems to be a better broadcast type platform.
