Who’s the Twit?

Read an interesting article in Newsweek about ghostwriting of blogs and even Twitter posts (often called “tweets”).  In fact, the article mentions  recently launched UK company Twit4hire as example of a professional microblogging firm that can be hired to post as many as 20 tweets a day on your behalf.  As an investigator or researcher, remember not to assume that someones name on an article, blog post, or other online publication means that the content is actually written by them.  Trust but verify.
