For those who are all excited about Twitabit, the service that promises to queue up Twitter postings if the service is down, consider these two factlets:

  1. Twitabit asks you to type in your Twitter password — as in, you’re on a page on and asked to type in your password to another site entirely;
  2. Twitabit appears to have not one word of a privacy policy, or any other text that’ll help you understand why on Earth you should trust them with your password to another site.

Ummmm, no thanks. No thanks at all.
