1. Either Dreamhost is spamming Twitter, or lots of young girls are surprisingly excited about hosting

    I use Dreamhost to host this site. They’re pretty good but occasionally things go wrong, so I’ve got a saved Twitter search for “dreamhost” that lets me know when they’re having problems. Earlier today the saved search started turning up lots of identical tweets about Dreamhost from a load of young female users:

    "Online buzz" for Dreamhost

    Maybe I’m a cynic but I wonder if all these young girls really posted exactly the same tweet at the same time about dedicated hosting. I mean, it’s an exciting topic and everything, but it still seems a bit fishy to me.

    So what’s going on? Is Dreamhost using bot accounts to spam Twitter?
