I hope it will be reviewed for *everyone* not just developers. I was once told that the "policy" was that if the account hadn't been used in 9 months, it was considered abandoned. Most of the accounts I've heard about here have been idle for much longer than that. When I was looking for an account for my wife, there were 5-6 of them which had either never been used (or which had been used for the equivalent of "Hello? Is this thing on?" "I don't get it. Twitter is dumb"). Glad to hear that Twitter will be reviewing it. TjL
