Last night I started receiving tweets and IMs about strange messages appearing on twitter accounts. The complaints were so widespread and random that it certainly felt more like a twitter error than a hacking spree.
Soon after the odd messages appeared, twitter went down to fix the error.
twitter_status has now reported that the issue has been resolved:
If you briefly saw an unexpected page this evening, apologies. The bug has been fixed.

Just about one year ago, I stated that Dallas should make Tony Romo their starting quarterback…
I have long been a Dallas fan. I like the Big Tuna. Ware, Witten, Williams, Jones, Glennâ€“I love them all. Heck, Iâ€™ll even tolerate TO. Can we please, please put Drew Bledsoe out to pasture? I am really a fan, honestly. However, it is now time to give Romo the reigns.

Now when you receive a word document into gmail, you have the option of opening and editing these files in Google Docs.
This is a natural extension of getting users to try the service. Excellent idea. Although it is not working for me right now with all excel files, I believe sometimes I have seen this option for spreadsheets as well.
With Microsoft soon rollling out Vista, I believe this is another good example of how google plays go while microsoft plays chess.
