I suspect a large part of the answer to that is simply "Because they can."
Unlike other large social networks, the data in Twitter is open by default.

I say this partly because I realized that's what grabbed me about Twitter,
much more than the service itself.  I was attracted to the fact that a lot
of social data was easily accessible.

I'm curious if anyone can cite a similarly open, large social network (are
there any?) that hasn't seen much third-party analysis and such.
