This is what happens when you have jet lag and you wake up way too early and watch network TV news shows:
You find out that Bill Gates had to leave Facebook because he was getting too many friend requests.
I was heartbroken.
Bill G. was right up there on desired Facebook friends with Michael Dell and Vin Diesel (5,361,556 fans).
Alas, Michael Dell's profile no longer seems to be public, and Vin's page is a "Fan" page, and so won't let me become his friend.
While Uncle Billy G. is off dissing the long tail of his wannabe Facebook friends', Biz Stone and the Twitter game seem to have recuperated from their security break-in just fine.
In fact, Twitter is now offering online guidance for how businesses can use Twitter for competitive advantage.
Check out the "Twitter 101" guidelines here.
Muchas gracias, Twitterville.
