(did you miss my tweets?)
Did you hear? Twitter was hacked today by a "denial of service" attack!
My first thought was: I didn't know Twitter had crappy health insurance like me. I've had my share of "denial of service" and there's usually nothing much you can do about it unless you have hours and hours to spend on the phone with Gloria from Blue Cross, who is very nice but totally unable to do anything about anything unless you would like to spend hours and hours trying to get her supervisor on the phone, who totally by accident cuts you off every time just when you thought you were about to get somewhere.
Turns out, Twitter was flooded with phony communications requests, which caused them to shut down.
I have a feeling nobody missed me. I signed up for Twitter about 6 months ago, just to see what it was all about.
My one and only tweet was: "I don't know what I'm doing."
But I checked back today, and lo and behold, I have ten followers! One follower is a normal person - in fact, a very funny and talented blogger friend. (hi Amanda!)
Who are the other 9 people?? Let's take a look at 3 of them ...
There's Twittabiz from Australia, who tweets exciting updates like "OMG! OrderYourName.com is offering international currency options now!"
There's erabita from Canada, who tweets exciting updates like "Spotify Jukebox: It's fun and legal."
Then there's yipvwqtgypjb, also known as Your Kitty, who has a very exciting picture but no tweets at all.
Why are these people following me? Are they waiting for me to figure out what I'm doing? Do they think I will eventually order some international currency options? Are they hoping I will post some exciting Kitty-ish pictures of my own, which would be legal but probably not all that much fun?
I have no idea.
But keep following! Eventually I will have something else to say. I always do.
