Twitter is all abuzz this morning with re-posts of this ReadWriteWeb blog, which says the micro-blogging site is clamping down on the way people converse.
A piece of the blog's title - "Goodbye people I never knew" - has become one of the top 10 topics on Twitter today.
From Twitter's blog:
Twitter calls the change a "small settings update," but Twitter users seem upset about the move, saying that it cuts down on a common way to find new, interesting people on the site. More from ReadWriteWeb:
Also in Twitter news today, the site will shut down for an hour of maintenance at 2 p.m. ET. On the site this morning, people are also complaining of glitches.
