Does today's Che Twitter?

Are there insurgents you can follow on Twitter? In the digital age, many guerrilla groups (revolutionary, separatist or otherwise) have their own websites to publicize their causes. Do they use social media like twitter? And, how would I go about looking for them? (It's an academic question, I'm not making any plans...)

umm.. do I know you?

I occasionally pick up Twitter followers that appear to be bogus accounts (e.g. today's follower has stats of 1 tweet, following 640 people, 0 followers). What's up with these accounts? What's the motivation behind them? What are people trying to accomplish?

Can multiple users tweet simultaneously on one account?

I tweet for our library. I usually use Tweetdeck or Hootsuite...my question regardless of the app used (including Seesmic and Twitter's own page itself) -- can multiple persons be logged in to the same account and post at the same time? Other librarians from different departments would like to be logged in while I am logged in and tweet whatever. Thanks for your time.

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?

Twitter: The Followee of My Followee

Twitter question: Is there a tool which will let me see who the people I follow are themselves following, in aggregate? Of course, you can see who a given person follows, but so far as I know, you can only look at one account at a time. I'd like to see this information all grouped together in one place, and ideally sorted by popularity (i.e., with the sites followed by the most people toward the top). Thanks.
