View Full Version : Twitter spam
03-29-2010, 01:42 PM
I follow TouchMyApps (http://twitter.com/TouchMyApps), shigzeo (http://twitter.com/shigzeo), and ChiffaNe (http://twitter.com/chiffane) on Twitter.
All three of these accounts tweet about the same thing, as soon as a review comes out. It doesn't really bother me personally, but it can get a bit redundant.
Also, the "s" in "Site/Forum Feedback and suggestions" needs to be capitalized.

yea but don't forget. you're 1 of X number of people each of those follow...gotta cater to the masses my friend...if you followed me, you'd have 4 names up there instead of 3 because I auto-feed anything TMA

Why not use twitters (new) retweet system instead?

Hey, I try to get some other fun stuff up too! We do need to use Twitter more economically, but we are you know, over 30 and things come slowly to us. As for me, I have a more heavy influence among: photography/audio news and try to keep up on forums both at TMA and other places. Twitter does at times, feel like spam, but there are little bits which are very important which I've found among a lot of chaff.

I do notice that your tweets include stuff from the forums as well, but the other two are complete copies of each other.
Using the new retweet function is a solution because the retweet doesn't show up if you're following the original person.

Not only that. If you don't follow the original person but several others that retweet, you won't get spammed because retweets show only once.
I mean the new system has been designed for the sole purpose to eliminate the retweet spam.

Simple - when I retweet I use the tweetmeme button and it doesn't support the native RT yet. As soon as they fix it - you'll have a much cleaner feed ;)

See - it'll work out somehow. Thank you Thunder, Nine and everybody.
