What web bugs? the only ones I see on twitter.com are google analytics.

A somewhat better approach might be to look at a large sample of accounts
and note the date of their last tweet. This would of course exclude any
locked accounts, but would include all API driven posts. It wouldn't measure
how many are still simply reading (and not posting, aka "lurking").
