Quick man, stall!

My considered opinion is that http://twitter.com/#!/GNU_RMS is not the twitter account of Richard Stallman.
This http://www.fsf.org/events/rms-speeches.html suggests that his real account is http://twitter.com/#!/rmspostcomments
Only one tweet, of course. A man who reads the web via a script that uses wget to mail him the pages for off-line reading later is unlikely to tweet.

Of course, bringing up RMS it is obligatory for me to mention "http://danweinreb.org/blog/rebuttal-to-stallmans-story-about-the-formation-of-symbolics-and-lmi" which rebuts the popular and RMS-friendly view of the events around the creation of the two commercial lisp machine companies. Note the comments saying but everyone knows blah blah blah and Weinreb's reply saying yes, but that's because RMS's story was in Stephen Levy's book so everyone's heard that.
