A Twitter hole lets you Google protected tweets

So now when someone follows me with protected tweets I can just google “site:twitter.com/<username>” to see if I want to follow back instead of just ignoring them.

Note: I don’t follow people with protected streams unless I know them in real life. I want to know what I can expect from following you and your avatar and short bio are a very small part of that.

UPDATE: TechCrunch has a much better explanation about this “hole that probably isn’t” I’ve seen some of the exact things TC points out as I’ve dug into a few person’s protected tweets. TechCrunch reporting > LA Times reporting
