WiFi Pirates announced on Twitter

This is a big milestone for HotspotID: as of today, for every WiFi Pirate detected our server will tweet the details via @hotspot_id under the hashtag #WiFiPirate.

We have been testing this for a while and we were not sure about potential unintended consequences, but we bit the bullet and went ahead.

The tweet links to our live data page.
