More Mikeyy! And This Time, He's Philosophical

Yeah, he’s getting pretty boring now, but after yesterday’s shenanigans, Mikeyy is back again.

This time it appears to be another new variant. Messages are more cryptic and philosophical (examples: “Success is a relative term. It brings so many relatives.” and “Every man should marry. After all, happiness is not the only thing in life.”) and all end in ‘Womp. mikeyy’. Possibly the author meant to say worm instead of womp, but I guess we’ll never know.

Real-time Twitter search: http://search.twitter.com/search?q=mikeyy (safe link, and you can see all the examples of what to look out for here)

Again, it’s spreading super-fast. Thousands of infected tweets every few minutes. Whatever Twitter is doing, it isn’t working permanently. Meantime, the usual cure should work, and can be accessed on this blog at this link.

If you’re suspicious about short URLs, use LinkNark.

Please re-tweet and share with your friends, particularly those you note are infected. Thanks.

Updates as and when they come. Isn’t it curious this only happens on weekends?

UPDATE 1635 GMT: Twitter are reporting that things are back to normal, and Mikeyy does appear to have dropped off the search radar. Same time tomorrow? ;)
