And in other Twitter news …

1. Gordon Lightfoot: The iconic singer is releasing a new album, Massey Hall Moments – All Live, on April 17th from his concerts at the historic Toronto venue over the years. And tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at masseyhall.com for his gigs there this November. But if you could read my mind, you would’ve known that already.

2. @AngiesRightLeg: The Oscars were a dud, if not for Angelina Jolie’s right leg. She displayed it prominently — and cheekily — in a black velvet dress with a thigh-high slit, and someone created a parody @AngiesRightLeg on Twitter that night, with tweets like “You have to admit I’m one hell of a leg.” It now has more than 40,000 followers. No word on how Angie’s left leg feels.

3. Me to We leaders: Founded by the brains behind Free The Children, Craig and Marc Kielburger, the Me to We organization — which encourages people to become involved in positive change to the world — has Take Action summer-camp academies in cities across Canada to teach leadership to youth. For more info, go to Metowe.com. Be the change.

4. Rob Delaney: This L.A. comedian wasn’t really known until he became famous on Twitter (@robdelaney) with his (NSFW) comic tweets that have generated 335,000 followers, and now he’s developing a show based on his Twitter account for Comedy Central called @robdelaney. “This is no $h*! My Dad Says” would be a good punchline on the show.

5. Brian Burke’s trade deadline: The Leafs GM said, “I think the trade deadline is hard on players, but I think it’s murder on players in Toronto,” and his staff had even talked of instituting a 10-day trade freeze in the leadup to the deadline to relieve Leaf players of trade stress. I’m playing the world’s smallest violin right now for you, Brian.

6. Twitter dictates: Sir Richard Branson on Twitter inventor Jack Dorsey in the new issue of Fast Company: “By inventing Twitter, Jack may have well brought down dictators in North Africa and the Middle East. That’s not bad going for one guy.” Absolutely.

7. NASCAR driver tweets: When Brad Keselowski was delayed with other cars during a Daytona 500 race this week, he tweeted via @keselowski from inside his car while he waited for the race to resume. And he tweeted again after a crash late in the race. He may not have won Daytona, but he tripled his number of followers, going from 65K to 200K.

8. Ginger Ale on plane:
It might well be because people associate it with treating motion sickness (it settles the stomach), but have you ever noticed that basically 50 per cent of people on a plane order ginger ale? Outside a plane, you rarely see someone order it. Unless it’s with rye. Tall observation to finish your week.
