    That crazy increase in traffic must have helped their organic listings, One thing i have wondered about is the fact that twitter converts URL’s into Tiny URL’s? Why does it do this and not just make the links ‘no follow’

      Twitter doesn’t convert your links into tinyurl’s…the users do that themselves to save on space (you can do you own by going to tinyurl.com).

      Also the links users post are already no follow. If you wanna see for yourself just right click on a link and click on the properties option in the drop down menu.
