Twitter Hacked

So, it looks like Twitter has been gamed. I'd venture to guess that the speed in which this site gained popularity, and with all the focus on performance and availablity, that they don't have a whole lot of logging going on in the app. I wouldn't be surprised if it takes them some time to figure out how the follow functionality was attacked. Who knows, maybe I'm wrong.

Wonder how quickly these accounts can proliferate in the meantime. Maybe they'll just shut down the entire API until they figure it out.
