My Twitter profile (@SoftwareHollis) says “I boycott TrueTwit!”.
I use an entire 19 characters out of my allotment of 140 to let people know that I won’t follow them it I have to validate through TrueTwit. That’s a lot of characters in TwitterLand, so it must be a big deal for me.
But is TrueTwit inherently an “evil” product, or simply a great product that I dislike?
What is TrueTwit?
Not familiar with TrueTwit? It’s a “validation service” that some people use on Twitter.
When you follow someone who uses TrueTwit, you’ll get a direct message back asking you to fill out a “Captcha” form to validate that you’re a real person...
