The best tweets and funniest Photoshoped images of the Queen’s visit

Today was an historic day for Ireland. In what is seen as a sign of the peace and close friendship between The Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom the country saw the first State visit by a British monarch. Meanwhile, on Twitter the visit proved to be a goldmine for the best of Irish online comedy (and lightening fast Photoshop skills). Here are some of the best from today.

As a result, the moon appeared 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal, granting photography enthusiasts around the world a rare opportunity to shoot the moon in such inviting circumstances.

A year in review, the global news perspective on 2010 [Video]

In 2010 over 25 billion Tweets were sent and about 9 billion emails were exchanged. We watch 700 billion videos on Youtube, that is about 13 million hours or the equivalent of 1,500 years of continuous viewing (We hope you like piano playing cats). At year’s end it is natural to look back, to review the dying year and take stock of what has happened. This is what the world’s media has been doing this week, so join us on The Sociable’s review of the reviews of 2010.
