wow, that is amazing. It seems like twitter is all over the place right now. I can’t seem to get away from it!!! It seems weird to me that people would pay that, people can so easily just stop following you. I mean, I know the people I follow ~ like you~ it’s because I know them, like them and learn from them. If you sold your twitter account and all the sudden I’m getting random twitter messages from someone other than you I would just stop following. Doesn’t quite seem worth it to me. did you see a guy bought one man’s goal for 10K? I think it’s getting a little out of control!

Jackie,

I totally agree… this is getting a bit out of control. I’m not sure how I feel about the Twitter Account auctions, but in reality, it doesn’t matter how I feel, does it? If someone sells their Twitter account and it’s one I follow, I can always drop it if I am not happy with the new owner.

I’m really curious to see how this all plays out.

Not surprised. Everything is for sale now a days. Only problem with Twitter is I still don’t understand it. I just don’t get why I want some stalker knowing exactly what I am doing.

I guess, if you just use it for a few links it might be OK, but all links are no follow, except for the link in the profile.

Maybe I am missing something.

Hmmm…. Looks like the listing for the auction is now gone. The auction still had 7 days, but now… POOF. Wonder if it was sold? Can you end an auction early?

A-Ha… found it….

“The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale.”

Wonder what happened…anyone know?

Looks like Andrew Baron changed his mind and decided to not auction off his Twitter account on eBay. From his Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/andrewbaron):

” I would never abandon you, but I could not leave you with an empty message in my place. I deleted the auction. New development forthcoming.”

I hate to rain on your parade, but the auction was cancelled

Yup, Mark…saw that. (See my comments above yours) =)
