Default I Twitter, therefore please rob me

A group by the name of Forthehack has launched a website called Please Rob Me which serves to expose the security risk of location-aware online services such as Twitter and Foursquare.

It has opted to do so by listing all the empty homes that are available to be robbed by publishing a live feed of those Foursquare players who automatically post location updates to Twitter.

Frekking sweet; this is the same as people posting on Facebook when they are on holiday, and don't set any privacy setting, so world+dog knows there are not there; through foursquare it also adds your home address... WIN WIN
