As if an auto DM when you follow someone on Twitter was not irritating enough, some people use TrueTwit Validation.
This isn’t a new phenomenon – the service has been irritating me and other Twitter users for some time. What really annoys me is that TrueTwit is a robot for checking whether or not I’m a robot!
If someone does not have time to take 30 seconds to cast an eye over my profile then I would question their motives for even being on Twitter. It wouldn’t wash on other social networks.
I definitely don’t want to waste my time filling in a form in the hope that someone I’ve only just discovered on Twitter might maybe perhaps follow me back.
I wonder how many Desperate Dans actually fill in the form?
