Dear Reader,

Did you read the news on Tuesday about the tweet that sent the stock market crashing? The market did quickly recover when it was discovered that the tweet was the result of a hacked account, and not accurate. If you’ve been sitting on the social media sidelines, this is one stunning incident that shows the power of social media.

What exactly were the 140 characters that sent the US stock market into a (brief) tailspin?

From @AP:
Breaking. Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured.

Read more at CNN.

In related news, many are now beating the drum that it is time for Twitter to implement two-factor authentication.

See ya on the Net,

#2. Mother’s Day

by Barbara J. Feldman

Mother’s Day Printable (** for premium members only)

Mother’s Day is a time to show our gratitude for everything Moms do. And for those Moms who are lucky enough to still have their own Moms to celebrate with, it’s a double holiday. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

Billy Bear 4 Kids: Happy Mother’s Day
Billy Bear comes through for Mom, with gifts to print, color and cut; postcards to send; and certificates to fill out. My favorite clicks are the printable Photo House picture frame that can be colored and filled with family photos, and the always popular Promise Booklet of coupons to relieve Mom of her daily chores.. Other unique electronic gifts include Happy Mother’s Day wallpaper and screensavers for Mom’s computer.

Danielle’s Place: Mother’s Day Crafts and Activities for Kids
Danielle’s Place offers both Mother’s Day crafts and instructions on making homemade cards. My picks include Refrigerator Photo Magnets (I’m crazy about fridge magnets!), Window Clings (the kind you might put on a sliding door so the birds don’t fly into the glass), the Button Bracelet on an elastic band, and the Mother’s Day Poem on a Doily. “When I see all the things you do / I can tell your love is true.”

Kaboose: Mother’s Day Cards
Wow, these craft cards are so beautiful! With over twenty unique ideas (and step-by-step instructions) you can create a stained glass card with tissue paper to hand in a window, a cupcake card for moms with a sweet tooth, or a teacup card with ribbon and pearl beads. Each craft includes a difficulty rating, suggested age range and user ratings on a scale of five.
