New Twitter behavior

I signed onto Twitter and saw a new message at the top of the page.

A picture named twitterscreen2.gif

When I clicked on the button it took me to a new page to compose a tweet welcoming Amar back to Twitter (whatever that means, they don't explain).

Update: The first reminder was interesting. The second one is starting to feel like spam.

I'm guessing the people at Twitter don't understand how casual a follow is. I follow people I don't know. Last thing I want to do is "welcome them back." I have no idea where they went. Twitter is not for friends. That's Facebook. We need a way to opt out of this.
