How is it that some of the people on Twitter have blue circles on their pics?

Hey Sunny,

I've had people say that before, but I think the Twitter glitch is fixed. If you type in "emily batts trialnet" I show up. Let me know if you still can't find me. And Sunny, what is your username? I'll follow you.

Hey, my Tu Diabetes friends...my girlfriend has Type 1 diabetes, so I just started a campaign called 'Run To Stop Diabetes'. Visit www.RunToStopDiabetes.com for more info on the campaign & let me know what you think!! We're running the 2011 ING NYC Marathon to raise money & awareness for diabetes.

Hi all - my Twitter handle is http://twitter.com/PAWeissenstein If your profile doesn't say diabetes or T1 or T2 in it please mention it in a tweet to me if you decide to follow me. I'll then add you to my Twitter list of diabetics as well.
