Favorite posts of the week

There have been a lot of great blog posts focused on Twitter this week?  Of course, you can always find blogs about Twitter. Here are some of my favorites.

On TechCrunch, On Twitter, Most People Are Sheep: 80 Percent Of Accounts Have Fewer Than 10 Followers.

Have you read Marshall Kirkpatrick’s provocative post, How Twitter's Staff Uses Twitter (And Why It Could Cause Problems), on ReadWriteWeb?

For a little humor, Conan O'Brien introduces Twitter Tracker as pointed out by Biz Stone.

Also, on the humorous or maybe ridiculous side, Tony La Russa’s suit against Twitter for an imposter account. and Twitter’s response which also talks about the upcoming Verified Accounts. More on that, here.

And speaking of sports, did you see, Mashable’s Shaq vs. Dwight Howard on Twitter, and What It Means for Sports by Ben Parr

And one you may not have seen, Derek Peplau’s first blog post, Spamifest Destiny, where he shares his strategy for combating follower spam. A pretty nice debut!
