The Ghost Messages of Yahoo's Recycled IDs

http://j.mp/176KZQf  (Medium)

    Eva Chan knows the value of a good username. She's had @EC on Twitter
    "longer than Twitter has had vowels." So when Yahoo started offering
    recycled user IDs, she put a few names on her wishlist. A little
    later, Yahoo gave her one of those names.  Then she started getting
    emails about a stranger's cancer.
