Throttling posts to prevent flooding twitter? (1 post)

    I imported posts from one of my blogs into my main blog last night, using the WordPress import tool. I forgot about the Twitter Tools plugin, and it dutifully posted tweets for each post imported, sending hundreds of tweets out in the span of about a minute. Hilarity ensued.

    Is there any way to add a sanity check before posting tweets, to prevent flooding? Stop after the fifth tweet within a minute? etc...

    I know I was the idiot for not disabling the plugin before importing. I hadn't realized the plugin would get called as part of the import process (which seems obvious, in hindsight).
