Interestingly, it could be a blank website that provides the greatest hint as to who Romney will pick.
The Daily Dot’s Justin Franz • Claiming that Mitt Romney’s vice president might be hinted at simply by reading the social media tea leaves. Their guess? TPaw. Tim Pawlenty? Their evidence: Pawlenty’s site is currently down and has a “Please come back later” message on it, and that he hasn’t updated his main social media outlets in two or more weeks. Bobby Jindal and Rob Portman, the other two candidates suggested to be in the top three, have meanwhile kept their social media presences strong. Will the Web give away the story before Romney can announce it? That’s what The Daily Dot seems to be banking on.

What it’s like to be a YouTube “reply girl”

A few months back, you might remember we did a piece on the rise of YouTube’s “reply girls,” a number of users who managed to game the YouTube popularity system to help drive traffic and ad money from their clips. (Well, at least for a while … the algorithm eventually got changed.) The most well-known, Alejandra Gaitan, who literally goes by “The Reply Girl,” is extremely disliked and unpopular — especially by other reply girls. Above is an interview with Gaitan that Vice did which proves to be extremely insightful into why she chose her current route and her somewhat dark backstory. Also worth reading: The Daily Dot’s take on the matter, which notes that Gaitan’s looking to move into a money-making realm that’s a tad less fraught with hatred. (Warning: NSFW language)

Figures. The second we write up something, we find that The Daily Dot has gotten there literally three hours before. Read their piece, which goes into significantly more depth than ours on the matter.

Thanks to our friends at The Daily Dot for mailing us a print copy of their ceremonial newspaper ”first issue”. We got this via our apparently-growing Klout, BTW. Cool idea to launch your product, dudes. (Check out our previous coverage of them over here.)

One fairly interesting feature of The Daily Dot is that it ranks the influence of Tumblr and Reddit users. We admit to not understanding the numbers, but according to this metric, we rank within the top 100 for likes and the top 500 for reblogs. Are you ranked? What is your influence?

New publication of the day: The Daily Dot, something of a community newspaper for Reddit and Tumblr (and online communities as a whole), just launched its full site after having a somewhat-active beta version going for a bit. Looks pretty cool. Check it out.
