Yay, thanks for your support!

It’s actually a bit less thrilling than this.  The Humble Bundle pulls its charity list from the PayPal Giving Fund.  It took some finagling (thanks, Jon!), but we finally got the Tor Project properly added to this list a couple of months ago, and then it took a bit of time for Tor Project to show up as one of the selections.  So there wasn’t a special day when we all of a sudden became a Humble Bundle charity.

That said, I don’t see any downside to tweeting about selecting the Tor Project when you purchase Humble Bundles from the official Tor Twitter account.  :)
