    I have no idea how the company can move forward after this happened. The death of Twitter is almost certain now. To deal with this devastating news, I recommend you tell the boss you are taking the afternoon off to consider your options. May your God be with you in these troubling times.


    In what's certain to become the most devastating news ....was considered prolific and "interesting" among the Twitter crowd, and heartbroken fans -- in between bouts of hysterical sobbing and hair-tugging desperation.

    Hmm...so there's people on one side of the planet crying because they don't have food/water/a home/their family has been killed/they have no money. Then there's people on the other side crying because they can't follow the minute-by-minute activities of a sixteen year old girl online. Poor tweetards :(

    Read some of the articles on Twitter in the Security Zone and Water Cooler sections.

    scamware, malware, compromised accounts, etc. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

    Since we have no idea who it is - it must be a celebrity.

    Does this mean that Twitter is only worth a half BILLION? Before Miley left twitter was valued at more than General Motors. I read a report the other day that said by the time Miley was 22 SHE would be worth a Billion dollars. Billy Ray done good !

    I think twitter does serve a valuable service... just the other day the authorities caught a fugitive because he twittered his location.

    What is twitter anyway? I thought it was just text messaging made public. I guess I'm twittering a little now and didn't know it. Gezz.. had someone told me I was twittering I would have thought I needed to see a doctor.
