    Hey thanks for the link :)

    Google def follows twitter links, it would be crazy for them not to.

    I think I read something before about Google following nofollow links, unfortunately now so many sites, blogs, forums etc nofollow external links so if Google didn't indeed follow them then they would be missing out on a hell of a lot of content.
