In my boredom as of late I'm finding myself searching through Twitter's public wall to see what sort of "juicy" information I can find. Not surprisingly, people are openly sharing all sorts of information that I would consider to be "private."

I've seen user statuses that include information ranging from cell phone numbers to their mother's maiden name. I'm pretty sure that "What is my mother's maiden name?" is still a commonly used security question for various websites. As for publicly sharing your cell phone number, I hear "SMS Bombing" is a fairly common attack nowadays...

Here are some of my search queries thus far (If I come up with any other decent ones, I'll add them here):

"text me at"

"call me at"

"maiden name" + "first pet"

"won't be home"

"won't be home" + "til"
