Combine instant celebrity with cute, furry (though slightly creepy) animals, and you have pretty much the perfect subject for Web 2.0. The ex-bat that clung to space shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank during blast-off last week now has its own Twitter site, YouTube videos, web sites and Facebook page. Not to mention nearly 4,000 Google news hits. As of this writing (wait 20 minutes and it will change), DiscoveryBat has 285 followers hanging on every posthumous tweet.
