Is it acceptable to use a smart phone in a public talk?

I went to a talk by a well-known author yesterday in an auditorium. The lights were somewhat dimmed, but definitely not dark. The person in front of me spent about half of the talk live-tweeting bits from the talk. The lights were sufficiently dim that the (5-6") cell phone of the person in front of me was quite distracting to me, since it shined directly at me (the user actually turned the phone away from them a bit, which I wonder was due to the brightness of the screen.). However, I am somewhat more sensitive to bright light than other people. Has smart phone usage reached sufficient social acceptance to allow usage in a non-darkened auditorium? [more inside]

Why did my Twitter tweet-count suddenly jump by 8,000?

Why did my Twitter count suddenly jump by 8,000? When I started Twitter about a years ago, my Tweet-to-Follower ratio was about one-to-one. When they added the re-tweet feature to my Twitter stream, that ratio dropped to about 3 to 2. Yesterday I had about 3.3K tweets, now it says about 11.3K. It's been hovering around 3,000+ for weeks now. Why the sudden jump? Is is possible that this was caused by a hacker getting into my account, or are a lot of Twitter users experiencing this?
