Twitter has produced a hot new
trend: real-time search. There is hardly a day that goes by within the
Internet industry that real-time search is not mentioned. To feed this

The emails carry the subject line “Your friend invited you to twitter!”, while the sender’s address is spoofed as “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
