I've bitten the proverbial bullet and joined twitter. You can follow me (if you're so inclined) at my oh-so-clever username: jonahbishop. I'll be using the service for small things that aren't quite worth a blog post (it will not take the place of this site). We'll see how it goes over time.
Frustratingly enough, when I signed up for twitter, the site was having major problems. Thankfully, things seem to be back to normal now. I've noticed a strange thing with the service, however. After climbing into the twitter pool, I noticed a number of leeches attaching themselves to my account. In other words, a number of random people started following me for no apparent reason (I recognize none of them). Does anyone else here who uses twitter see the same thing? Is there a way to stop it? Are these people simply spammers out to get "trackback" style web-cred?
