I was setting up a new Twitter account for a client and got my first ever TrueTwit validation email. Here’s what the site says about its service:
By signing up now for TrueTwit Basic, all of your new followers are sent a validation request via direct message. If your follower successfully completes the CAPTCHA (or is already a TrueTwit user), you are sent an email indicating they are a TrueTwit-validated human!
I’m not a fan of auto-follow services.
And because I don’t auto-follow-back, I’m not concerned if a bot-account follows me.
Here’s the rub: if you sign up for the free service, then each and every person who follows you will get a DM demanding that they prove they are a person!
That’s not very friendly.
Just say no.
FYI: Here’s what Twitter says about automated tweets.
