Will tweet for money (revisited)

Ten months ago I mentioned Andrew Baron’s attempt at selling his Twitter account on eBay, and the idea seems to have resurfaced today.  As Baron points out, his last attempt to do so caused a lot of debate and provoked an intriguing mix of hurt feelings and fascination.  I’ll definitely be following progress again this time round, but I still think it’s a publicity stunt :)  With Twitter becoming such a massive pheonomenon and adoption constantly increasing, and with users becoming far more accustomed to it’s use as a publicity tool (although one that is not without its downsides), I’m eager to see how the reaction to Baron’s move plays out this time.

PS Someone did actually try to sell 867 5309 on eBay, but it was pulled :(
