Metal Pwns Twitter!

Earlier yesterday, a Twitter bug was discovered that allowed users to force other users to follow them, by typing "accept" followed by the desired username (accept username). The bug was discovered when a Turkish metal head named Bora Kırca, was rocking too hard to German heavy metal legends Accept, and ended up tweeting "Accept pwns" only to find out that the user @pwns started following him.

Naturally, what he did next was make a shit load of celebrities follow him, and then the Twitter frenzy blew up. Gizmodo, Mashable and many other social networking/tech sites as well as Blabblermouth, picked up the story, since then Twitter had to reset all users followers to "0" for a short time to fix the bug, and have been successful.

Conan O'brien
, who joined Twitter after the late night wars, tends to always have something funny to tweet about, was one of many celebrities that were forced to follow other users.

The best thing about this, is that the recently reformed (with a new line up) Accept just released a new video for the song "Teutonic Terror" from their latest album "Blood of The Nations" out September 14th via Nuclear Blast Records. The album is the band's first in 14 years, and if anything this whole Twitter buzz should really help boost talks about the band's return.

Plus, "Teutonic Terror" has got a killer old school riff that will get you head banging instantly.

Visit Accept on Myspace for the latest updates concerning the band's upcoming album "Blood of The Nations" out September 14th on Nuclear Blast Records.

Accept's recently reformed new line up is as follows:
  • Wolf Hoffmann: Guitar
  • Peter Baltes: Bass
  • Herman Frank: Guitar
  • Mark Tornillo: Vocals
  • Stefan Schwarzmann: Drums
