I couldn't help but notice that the @StackStatus twitter account follows @RyanSeacrest.

@StackStatus provides status updates for the Stack Exchange network along with stackstatus.net, so there doesn't seem to be any obvious reason for the account to follow Ryan Seacrest. Is there some joke here that I'm missing?

Can anyone explain this for me?

    An SE employee who has control over that account probably forgot to switch over to their personal account while browsing Twitter. Jul 23, 2014 at 19:20

    It's a very low key inside joke.

  • I have hunch it is secret signal "Canary Resets". (Though [recreants say] [Cesareans try] [a scary resent]).

The Community user has been gaining sentience, ever since it was introduced.

Thankfully, with this level of intelligence, we don't have much to fear.

    If that's what @Community is choosing to do with it's sentience, we might need to terminate. Jul 25, 2014 at 20:36

    @Oded Maybe the rep would go to Ryan Seacrest?
