Bringing bright ideas to life

Session en anglais - Débutant

Who would have thought putting 140 charachter messages about one's life online or having a virtual farm game could ever be popular ? Then again, many of us have those weird (but sometimes brilliant) ideas. So you have the idea that will make you the next Twitter or Facebook.
