I got an email today from Twitter, with the following:
StackHQ @StackHQ is now following you (@NetherPhoenix).
Which is sort of surprising, considering:
- I have only one "normal" follower (And he's related to me, anyway)
- I don't use Twitter all that often, and have never had any interaction with Stack Exchange on Twitter
- I don't list my Twitter account anywhere on my profile or otherwise (though it is the same as the email address listed in my profile / the email I use for OpenID)
Given this, I am both confused as to why StackHQ is following me, and how StackHQ found out about my Twitter account in the first place.
What's going on here?
