Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on twitter.
The internet combined with hard economic times has caused newspapers and magazines to close left and right due to major losses in print advertising. On Wednesday, New York Times Co. announced that its flagship newspaper's web site, will move to a paid model at the beginning of 2011. Users will have free access to a certain number of articles per month, and then be charged once they exceed that number. The news makes the New York Times your hot twoppic of the moment.
Your hot twoppic of the day is Port-au-Prince, Haiti, after a 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck on Wednesday morning only eight days after the country's capital was devastated by a massive quake. The aftershock sent people screaming into the streets fleeing the already unsteady buildings. Luckily, it caused very little extra damage to the capital.
Hot twoppics of the week: Massachusetts Senator-elect, Republican Scott Brown. Brown's stunning upset is a huge blow for Democrats, who now have their work cut out for them, especially regarding health care reform, which Mr. Brown does not support. Once sworn in, Brown will break the Democrats' filibuster-proof majority in Washington. Now, Democrats are scrambling to pass health care reform before Brown is certified. Some tweeps have started a twitter petition to seat Brown right away.
