Does anyone else think that this is ridiculously freaky?
It will take Identity Theft to a whole other level. Steal someones phone or get their email password and you can almost BE them.

I like Twitter as a concept: it's just the most simple way of blogging. But I don't understand how could this replace feed readers. Many people like Twitter alerts and many blogs have Twitter pages where they push the content of their feeds.

As long as there's no filter, all these alerts could easily become annoying.

Absolutely, if it will grow, it has to deal with spam.

I agree Ionut its a concept in the making. I think of it like a platform that is organically evolving. Within 1wk of gaining traction , growth has exploded not only in the userbase, but also the mashups happening..

IMO, riddling the system with injectable "twitters" – will be choas for the servers.. thats now becomes a new method of spam and will annoy users!!

"I don't understand how could this replace feed readers."

technically there is no need of reader for micro blogging.. it hits my landing page/ or IM client directly..!!
