Is the see you in a while mean an untethered jb is coming?
hopefully, i had to wait 3 or 4 months for a untethered 2g jailbreak when i first bought it, but i doubt thats what hes saying
it means that 70% of replies george gets anre about people that want/request an untethered jailbreak
lets be realistic
as far as i know i think that either the chronic devteam or the dev team already find a hole in the new bootroom, in other words they can do an untethered jailbreak
BUT THEY JUST CANT release it to the public yet, so apple will patch, i mean the new iphone its just a few months away and so does the new ipod touch, lets don't forget the islate ( dont flame me on this i dont know about the relations on the islate software/hardwre with the iphone)
It means he's blocking all communication with twitter on his system. It blocks all calls/responses to that host name.
Wait, I could be wrong.
EDIT AGAIN: No read up a little again (dodgy memory Please Register or Log in to view images) and it looks like I'm right.

It doesn't literally "block" requests (though that is the idea). 127.0.0.1 (localhost) is /your/ computer, so all outgoing requests to hostname twitter.com will be sent to localhost, which won't handle them.
In short, its a geeky way of saying gtfo.
EDIT: if you're on a *NIX system (Mac, too), it's as easy as editing /etc/hosts
@ axis, thanks for the clarification
This is quite the opposite of releasing an untethered.
Setting twitter to localhost = not wanting anything to do with it.
We are not getting untethered until Greenpoison.
