About Twitter
Twitter is a unique approach to communication and networking based on the simple concept of status. What are you doing? What are your friends doing—right now? With Twitter, you may answer this question over SMS or the Web and the responses are shared between contacts.

Turns out this is to be a kinda legit mail, as HotTopic is just a “twitter” bot/account used by Twitter to pretend someone is interested in registering.
