Thoughts on Leaked Twitter Docs

I couldn't stop myself from reading Tech Crunch's leaked Twitter docs. [disclaimer: Arrington is a total douche, but you knew that already.]

The more I read, the more I wanted to know. At the same time, I feel like I really shouldn't be looking at it. A delicious but guilt-inducing infosnack.

The feelings of uncontrollable curiosity reminded me of another incident involving leaked data: the AOL Search Data Scandal of 2006.

Fun Fact: Abdur Chowdhury, the researcher responsible for the AOL data leak back in 2006, is now Chief Scientist at ... Twitter.

Not that that's anything more than a coincidence, of course.
