Twitter Adds NoFollow to Username Links and Hash Tags for Trending Topics

Looks like this is a new update. Twitter has added rel=”nofollow” to the @ username links. So are the #hashtags, which may have already been implemented before except I just noticed them today. So if you use a browser plugin which highlights or strikes through nofollow links, your web Twitter feed is now full of crossed out links. Not sure I really see the point of Twitter doing this for the usernames…
