bseeingu.com updated today, with the following in source:
 Code:
Taking "twit her" and "elftrytub" to get http://twitter.com/Elftrytub -- apparently our chrysalis has burst forth with a mutated butterfly

There is another puzzle after that, which has been solved, using all 134 'tweets' in reverse chronological order. I guess Elfry knows how to 'tweet' from the end of her message backwards. Solution:
 Spoiler (Rollover to View): Google some of the tweets to find the source material. That document can be used to place each tweet within a sorted order -- first sentence = A, 2nd = B, etc, so that each sentence represents a letter of the alphabet. Then substitute the letter for each tweet by its document position (with line breaks where it just says "Elftrytub") and you get the following message (I've separated the words for easier reading): DEAR DREAMER THE INNER DIAMOND SHIELDS LAY BEFORE YOU SLEEP PLACE SHIELD ABOVE CROWN MINDS EYE CONNECTS EIGHT SHIELD POINTS WITH BLUE AND TONE OUT TO THE OLD ONES Where a tweet ends with the numeral '2' that isn't part of the original sentence, it means to double that letter.

thanks for that Cath, Who is "he" of "he said"?

Also any ideas where the name "elftrytub" comes from? I would never have thought of that as a possible twitter name. oh ok Cath is too nice to point out again the it is an anagram of butterfly.

So the paper she used in her tweets are from the famous paper by Lorenz on Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow. Lorenz's ideas are the foundation of the "butterfly effect" and chaos theory.

I think she may be in part telling us that the conditions of this chapter of her story are different, that she is different and so we can expect completely different outcomes.

More twitters, plus a change in the avatar icon.

Sacho (anagram for 'chaos')

hopefully there will be more (and more useful).

New Twitters, same ol' sacho icon.

I was no help in the decoding process, just passing word along.

One final tweet from Elftrytub simply says
