Hi everyone,

I've created a fun side project introducing Twitter-based DIDs. 
You can find the spec here, inspired by both the did:key and did:github methods: https://github.com/did-twit/did-twit/blob/master/spec/index.md
I have a cli where you can build did:twit identifiers, author messages, and verify other's did:twit messages here: https://github.com/did-twit/did-twit-cli

Imagine if everyone affected by the Twitter hack a few weeks ago had been using verifiable tweets? Some ideas I have for where to take the project include storing the signatures on IPFS to reduce the noise on Twitter, or building a verifiable Tweet client.. Reach out if you're interested in contributing.
