An obnoxious computer program that barged into Twitter's mishmash of Internet chatter served as another reminder of the challenges facing the rapidly growing service.
The nettlesome program, known as a worm, targeted Twitter's network with four different attacks starting early Saturday and ending early Monday, according to Twitter co-founder Biz Stone.
The worm was set up to promote a Twitter knockoff, StalkDaily.com. It displayed unwanted messages on infected Twitter accounts, urging people to visit the Web site.
