I would like to use TweetMyMac to send iSight pictures to me via MMS. Unfortunately, all it actually does is text a link to a Twitpic page, rather than MMS-ing the picture to me, and I can't follow links from my internet-less non-smartphone. [more inside]

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?

Any good examples of "Social Sign In"? For the little web toys I make, I don't want to make full sign up forms, so I'm looking for any sites that are using Facebook / Twitter / Google / Yahoo / OpenID / etc for sign in. Something like what stack overflow is doing here: http://stackoverflow.com/users/login (only OpenID though).

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.

How do I sync a twitter account with a Facebook Fan Page
Please note that I am not asking about Facebook Personal Profiles but the Facebook Pages that organizations have. I want to be able to update twitter by updating the Facebook Page Wall. I also want to be able to update the Facebook Page Wall by updating Twitter.
I have tried both the Twitter and Selective Twitter Applications for Facebook but neither of them work.

I recently fell in love with the concept of fake Twitter accounts, and I'm currently collecting them towards some sort of a project.
Can you recommend you favorite (if any) fakes on Twitter?

I can't seem to get into the whole Twitter experience. While I think I like the concept, after trying it several times I always seem to lose interest soon afterward. Is it just not for me, or are there some cool uses for it that I'm not aware of? What could I do with Twitter to make it worthwhile? What do you
do? [more inside]

I run a moderately popular blog. I'd like to have the Twitter account associated with the URL, but it's suspended -- presumably because somebody used it for evil. I've contacted Twitter support several times, and they make motions like it's possible for me to claim this account but then they just close my ticket (marking it as "solved") with no explanation. I cannot figure out how to get actual support. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? How can I get Twitter support to actually support
me and not mark an unsolved issue as "solved"? Am I simply at the mercy of the Twitter fates? Yes, I know Twitter is a free product and that I get what I pay for. Thanks.

A while ago, I set up a Twitter account that aggregates several RSS feeds using Twitterfeed (don't want to associate my MeFi account with it, hence the anonymous post). I never manually post to it. I just noticed that from June 1 to June 2, there's a string of about 20 tweets displaying as having been posted from the web, not from Twitterfeed. What gives?
