Do you know what day/date the idiot thinkers at Twitter decided to release abandoned usernames? I begged them for months to release @Crash which wasn't in use for over 2 years. I've seen them release names for other ppl that requested it. They kept denying that request. One insider told me, "the only way to get it done is walk up to one of the Twitter staff at at 140 conference and make a scene like I did". I even offered to pay Twitter a reasonable fee to release the name to me. More denial emails. I just happen to check again this morning and my coveted, rightly deserved username now belongs to another bot holding it for ransom. Be advised. I will most likely dump Twitter when they force us to use the new interface.
