Twitter real-estate grab and spam is registering celebrity names on Twitter. “Followers” can get Twitter-delivered gossip updates about those celebrities. They are promoting the site by “friending” Twitter users. Hey, how could I not click through on an email that says “Nichole Kidman” has just made your her friend on Twitter? Twitter spam has arrived.

But note: Remember when you forgot to register your name’s URL? Who knows? Twitter may turn out to be Pet rocks, but it’s free to register, so what are you going to lose? Note to potential Twitter acquirer: Get ready for some lawsuits.
