I just looked at the number of people following me on Twitter. I used to have many more following me than I was following. Now 60 people less than the number I follow are following me. My friends abandoned me! (or the spammers went away) I can only assume that in allowing Twhirl to stay in a visual part of my second monitor today, which encouraged Twitter to act as a chatroom instead of notification board, that the number of Tweets I made drove a large group of people away! I am sure that all the localized Knoxville tweets, family tweets, non-topic specific jokes, and overwhelming lack of technical or political relevance had nothing to do with it. I’m a Twitter abuser!
Update: It’s a Twitter bug!
