failwhale I really oughta be working on packing up the house right now, but a lot of interesting news tidbits keep dragging me back to the blogging window to post about them.  This one comes from Twitter’s Evan Williams:

We just launched a wacky new feature. You can now find people:http://twitter.com/search/u… Searches name field only. Rank by followers [number].

This isn’t, as with most Twitter features, an earth-shatteringly huge feature on the face of it. It is, however, something Twitter users have been looking for a long time.

It’s incredibly annoying to need to periodically import my GMail contact database to connect up with new friends on Twitter rather than as I think of it simply search up their name and click follow. This solves that issue.
