Twitter Malfunctions

I think Twitter is neat. The concept of aggregating brief messages from multiple sources is simple but fun, useful, and technically interesting (well to me anyway). But I have had some strange malfunctions in the past couple days. The most disconcerting was that SMS notifications were turned on in the middle of the night unleashing a small torrent of messages on my phone, waking me up.

In a stroke of good luck it turned out to be a good thing because I needed to get up and check the status of some long running processes anyway. But it took me awhile to figure out how to disable the thing (the setting on the home page wasn't working), and was on the verge of killing off my account. Anyways, I'm disconnecting for a while to go home to Jamestown then onto NYC. I'll plug back into the Matrix in a couple weeks.
