Twitter says "Don't Tweet About It"

I think twitter is using reverse Jedi on me. I have been reading about the new "lists" feature that twitter been working on. Presumably it is the functionality that many have been already using in web applications like tweetdeck and seesmic.
So I was surprised to see this splash banner come up on an account I help facilitate.
I will run to try out the feature now. I just thought it was funny how twitter announced this private rollout.

If you can't read it in the picture, the text says, "Lists are timelines you build yourself, consisting of friends, family, co-workers, sports teams, you name it. You're part of a small group receiving this feature, so don't tweet about it yet!"

They so want me to tweet about it, right?

Community Hunger Day - Tell Us How it is Going!

So many of our friends have chosen to participate with us on Community Hunger Day. I will give a tally of the total impact, number of participants and amount of donations in the coming days.
For now, I wanted to give us a public space to share some thoughts on how things went for you throughout the day. Please leave a comment and share some thoughts on the day.

I have several hours left before the day is over. I am sure I will notice my own hunger as the day turns into evening and I don't have work to distract me from my stomach. What are your thoughts?
