It seems Twitter was hit my a worm called Mikeyy, written by a 17-year old in the US
It spread out messages like:
Mikeyy I am done…
MikeyyMikeyy is done..
Twitter please fix this, regards Mikeyy
Man, Twitter can’t fix sh*t. Mikeyy owns.
Dude, Mikeyy is the sh*t!
Twitter should really fix this…

Twitter is very new and they will be tested by every goofy the smart ones and the dumb ones. Does any one know how much money it would cost in security for a new site like Twitter just to start up?

not to much, twitter is a simple blog site and its code is therefore not to complicated. However when such sites grow they wil need much money, just to pay for the servers.
