interesting... but the sites down.
Too many thieves online
internal server error
Probably was stolen (the server.)
Wow, this thing is clever. o_o
So clever, it's scary. D:
Wahaha! Talk about irony.
the site looks like its about people posting that they left their homes so its not exactly a tool just a warning.
Whenever the site's back up I'll look for some empty houses in my neighbourhood
it's up right now.
This was mentioned on the latest podcast of Cranky Geeks, and they made the somewhat humorous observation that it would be an excellent tool for vigilantes... a burglar aggregation device. So you tweet that you're not at home for the weekend then wait in the shadows with a shotgun for a nice burglar to shoot.
Seriously though, if someone researches a target enough to know if there is more than one person at the house, dogs, alarm systems, etc.. then they probably know enough about the property to rob it regardless of the "I'm on my way to the gym" tweet.
All that said, it's good that this site wakes people up enough that they might think twice about broadcasting their location to everyone in the world. The cops already know where you are due to your cell phone, which is troubling enough in and of itself without throwing the robbers into the mix as well.
So true, hopefully the people who use Twitter for these kind of useless things start to realize they are doing it wrong and putting themselves in danger.
Whoa. Thats kinda creepy. i dont like the idea.
Thats a pretty f'ed up site lol
This will work great for robbers everywhere except the Midwest of the USA. Here the people will turn robber hunting into a sport by posting they are away and sitting home waiting for the robbers with their shotguns at the ready. I am telling you, you don't want to mess with Rednecks, they shoot first and forget to ask questions. I swear they will hunt anything in the Midwest. Man I miss living in California.
Wow, that's a website I'll never visit. I hate the very thought of getting robbed... *shudders*
Gee... Now I've seen everything.
Well, there may be a bright side to this. This may help rid the world of all those lame Twitter users who are all:
