The Black Plague Is Stalking Me!

I'm still not totally sold on the whole Twitter thing, but I'm having some fun at its periphery.

As I mentioned in a previous post, someone has used my email address on his or her Twitter account, so I'd been getting notices that people (some I know, some I don't) thought they were following me via some Twitter account that I don't control. So back on March 19, I sent an email to Twitter Support alerting them to the problem.

On April 2, I got an email back from Twitter Support to tell me that... well, that they hadn't even looked at my message, yet:

Since then, however, I have two new people not following me on Twitter. This one from Friday is great just because of the person's Twitter name:

And now this bit of disturbing news:

The Black Plague is actually a friend of mine who created the account just to mess with people (proving the tremendous potential for Twitter after all, I guess). Check out this page.
