Twitter user names with less than two characters

List all Twitter user names with less than two characters

Updated in 2012/12/02: moved table to Google Docs.

Today I was curious if all the Twitter user names with less than two characters are already created. So I wrote a tiny script to check.

The result is: YES! All of them are already created. In fact, the last one, lh, was just created today! What a coincidence. However, quite a few user names are suspended, and user name me also seems to be reserved. Maybe there is still chance to create one in the future?
