    I'm sure this one does. It's just a simple script that searches for the term "sneak peak" and spits out a mention to the offending poster.

    I think this needs to be implemented with more of a correctional dictionary. Auto-Correct doesn't seem to be n00b friendly enough.

    There's also an account that generates a tweet when you reply to the sneak peak tweet: https://twitter.com/#!/uMad_at_SM
    Some replies are pretty hilarious

    Edit: It actually seems that even if you write @StealthMountain, the umad account will generate a reply

    What if you DID mean 'sneak peak' and you WERE corrected, and you told them you DID mean 'sneak peak' and they thought you were all jelly?

    The best Twitter-related humor will always be this one, sorry.

    @[member='DanTheManMS'] wow, that's harsh.

    back on topic, this is mildly amusing, but not for more than a few minutes.

    I know. I feel so terrible for laughing at it, but it's just too funny not to.

    Wow, I laughed way more than I should have.

    Enforcing grammar is a good thing, and I applaud this person for doing this.

    I don't think there's a real life person doing this, i think it's a script or something, maybe a bot.

    Yeah, usually it's server bots.
    They tend to get banned though, so don't expect it to stay alive too long.
