Twitter Snooze: Turn em' off for a little while
Tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
If you have an over-zealous Twitter pal or want to avoid a blast of tweets for a little while, Twitter snooze is a nice friendly solution.
Basically, it's an addition to Twitter ettiquette, so that you don't have follow and unfollow with the social implications of being a bit of an inconsistent jerk;)
When you "snooze" a pal, Twitter will send him/her an email alerting that person that you are now following them again (not unlike when you follow/unfollow). Hopefully, this will get improved over time. What's so amazing to me, though, is that we're developing a polite culture around our online behaviors - who knew that tweeting would require such trappings.
