That Free NY Times Twitter Account Got Taken Down. Here's Another One

When we told you how to keep reading the NY Times for free, we mentioned the Twitter account @freenyt. That's been taken down! The new one is @freeUnnamedNews (and expects to stay up since there's no mention of the NYT).

Remember, when you access the NY Times through links on Twitter, you'll always get the full story no matter how much you've read or how little you've paid. [BoingBoing]
