Best of Tweets: 20-05-09

I am starting an experimental new feature today called Best of Tweets. Many other bloggers do weekly link fests and I had somehow refrained form doing one myself. Using twitter, I am able to share many more links that I find interesting instantly , but I know that many of you are not on twitter; so perhaps a weekly best of tweets post that aggregates the best of my tweets for the past week may be useful to the mouse trap blog readers. Do tell me via comments whether you find this useful.Remember that this is a manually compiled by me list of best of tweets and is not auto generated, so I am putting some additional efforts here.

Without further ado, here is the best of tweets for week ending 20-05-09:
