"Mr. Sherlock Holmes was a very busy man" [SOLI]

There's a new tool available that's sweeping the Internet. It's called Twitter - it's a way to stay connected and it's extremely easy to use. It's described as:
A global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: What are you doing? Answer on your phone, IM, or right here on the web!
You'll note that there's a Twitter feed for one @S_Holmes over in the right column of our site. Follow his activity when you visit the blog. Better yet, join Twitter yourself so we can all update each other on community activities.

And if the bug really bites you, there are other Twitter-related sites to visit:

this is my first discovery of your blog.....well done, great work.
i consider, though it doesnt sound humble, a sherlockian, an expert on the canon, self ackowledged.
i also am one of those long suffering of mortals, suffering from holmesiana.
anyway, nice to go through your blog.
a few weeks back,incidentally, i had posted on the jezail bullet, the injury the good doctor sustained.
my long lasting problem question has been......Was sherlock holmes professor moriarity? did he decieve watson? because apart from holmes, NO ONE ever saw moriarity.....any thoghts?

Thank you for your comment, Mr. Khan. That's an interesting theory about Holmes as Moriarty. It might make an interesting article in the Baker Street Journal.

It is a bit thin, but Holmes does identify a thin person as Moriarty in The Final Problem and Watson notices "the black figure clearly outlined against the green" (perhaps the memory of the Master). Then, Inspector MacDonald reports "I made it my business to see him" in The Valley of Fear.

So there seems one firm and two shaky verifications of the Professor, although we can allow that perhaps it was Holmes in disguise who greet the Aberdonian.
