For a brief period this morning, the Twitterblogosphere was abuzz over the discovery of a bug (although it looked like it might be an intentional backdoor feature) that let Twitter users force other people to follow them. Bizarre–and swiftly fixed by Twitter once it was widely covered and abused.
I want to make one thing clear: @janefonda was following me before all this happened. (No, I don’t know why…)
