An interesting thing is happening at Twitter, which I have been following via the Domaining.com feed. Apparently two domain names were stolen from the GoDaddy account of Twitter commentator cvander (Maestrosdelweb.com and forosdelweb.com). Since many of this person’s posts are in Spanish, I cannot understand everything that has been going on, but it would seem that the domain owner posted updates about how his names were stolen and how he lost control of his Gmail account.
In response to the news, friends of cvander have been sending messages to Godaddy’s representative on Twitter, GoDaddyGuy. These messages, which can be seen by all, are verifying that these people know cvander and that his names have, in fact, been stolen. Godaddy would seem to be working on the issue, as the latest message is “To all those concerned about @cvander, please know we’re aware of the issue and working to find a resolution.”
It’s neat to see how Twitter is being used by domain owners in a variety of ways, and kudos to Godaddy for having a customer facing representative working on Twitter.
