> Remember that "Follow me on twitter here" thing, I don't think it was ever proven that it actually worked apart from the original article, but suddenly, everyone all over the web was using it.

I wish they'd stop writing "You should follow me on Twitter" as well. That's just about the most irritating, patronising thing I've seen in weeks. I am quite capable of choosing how to spend my time, and following the orders of someone whose web site I have just arrived at (probably looking for some actual content, which has been shoved further down the page by some annoyingly over-sized blue bird logo) is not high on my list of priorities. On the contrary, you could just relabel your entire page "Back" and make it clickable to simulate the effect it has on me.

Ah, I feel so much better now. :-)
