When you signed up for Twitter, do they send you a confirmation email to confirm your account?

Some idiot is using my hotmail address as their twitter email and I'm getting 10 "updates" per day...


I change my hotmail password almost weekly so really don't think the account been hacked..

The sign in for Twitter asks for full name, username, password, and email address...

Does twitter send an email to activate your account?

Twitter has been no help....

go to twitter.com, try to log-in using your hotmail account, and then hit the "forgot password" link. Once you get the password, change it to your liking and take over the twitter account as your own. I found five Dave Hickeys on twitter. Which one is using your hotmail addy?

Stop reusing the same password each time in Snotmail, ya noob...
Besides, most Lownjers use "Dave Hickey" as their password, which is no reason you have to use it, too.
(I had to beat MB1 to teh punch)

Dave, I know you're looking at this through your "old guy eyes", so I'm going to enlighten you - Twitter is not cool and it won't make the young people think you are. You're wasting your time, concentrate on IMing instead. Master that and by the time you do, some newer, possibly cooler thing will come out.

You can trust me on this, I'm the biggest new stuff lover in our generation (young women notably excluded) and I think Twitter is for Twits. Hence the name.
