Twitter index: Rangers' liquidation, Penny Wong, 'SimCity' returns

Twitter users are expressing disbelief as Dave King, director of Scottish football club Rangers, claims that "liquidation is inevitable."

 

In a statement released on March 7, Dave King outlined the problems facing the troubled football club, claiming that financial liquidation is unavoidable and stating "we must all strive to ensure that an appropriate ownership structure guarantees that this event is never repeated."

Microbloggers were also excited about the appearance of Australian senator and federal cabinet member Penny Wong on television network ABC's regular show Kitchen Cabinet, which engages Australia's politicians in debate over a meal in their own home.

Ermenistan Eurovision -- which uses the Turkish word for Armenia -- is also a popular topic among Twitter users after singers from the country announced they would be boycotting the annual singing contest due to its being hosted by Armenia's bitter rival Azerbaijan.

The news that Electronic Arts will be launching another edition of the classic city-building simulation game SimCity in 2013 has also sparked online buzz. The first trailer for the hotly anticipated game is available to watch on YouTube at: goo.gl/uJMe8

    Driving the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, with an astronaut at the wheel

    Car enthusiasts are basically adrenaline junkies. It is an addiction shared by all who love to feel their heart racing with excitement, whether it’s going fast on land, in the air, or even into space. And that is where my good friend NASA Astronaut Drew Feustel and I have in common: passion for cars and speed. When Drew called to say he was visiting, I thought about what I could do to top his already-amazing adventures in space.

    Dodge beats Ford, Chevy for fastest muscle-car ever with Challenger Hellcat

    If Dodge seemed to have taken a pause in the past couple of years while the old muscle-car rivalry between the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro reached new heights, it's making up for lost time with a quickness. Hot on revaling the 707-hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat for 2015, Dodge came forth today with an official proclamation: The Challenger Hellcat is the fastest factory muscle car to ever sprint a quarter-mile. Put that in your tires and smoke it.
