Tweetmeme chases links on twitter, annoying pile of...

IP: 89.151.84.180, 89.151.116.53, 89.151.116.59, etc.

USER AGENT:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0b; Windows NT 5.0) Gecko/2009011913 Firefox/3.0.6 TweetmemeBot

and more currently on 10/27/2011...

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; TweetmemeBot/2.11; +http://tweetmeme.com/)

Appears to be hosted on dedipower.com under multiple IP ranges.

89.151.84.32 - 89.151.84.47
89.151.116.48 - 89.151.116.63
blah, etc.

More if I get the time, but blocking dedipower's ranges would seem to solve the problem.

One of the reverse IPs pointed to something called datasift.com which claims to be a twitter data mining operation, maybe related, anyone know?
