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?

    Obviously Ryan Seacrest is actually a unicorn in disguise. – ShaWiz Jul 23 '14 at 19:18

    An SE employee who has control over that account probably forgot to switch over to their personal account while browsing Twitter. – pacoverflow Jul 23 '14 at 19:20

    Ryan Seacrest is where @StackStatus gets its information from. – Bill the Lizard Jul 23 '14 at 19:30

    It's a very low key inside joke. – Adam Davis Jul 25 '14 at 21:50
  • I have hunch it is secret signal "Canary Resets". (Though [recreants say] [Cesareans try] [a scary resent]). – sehe Aug 3 '14 at 20:22

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. – Ben Collins Jul 25 '14 at 20:36
