blog post: twitter reducing spam, but wait, there’s a catch!

I do a lot of twittering if that’s even a word. if it is not, well it is now. A recent thing came to light regarding a certain app and twitter. Basically that app can have nothing to do with twitter in the way it sends out messages. That can be good for wearing out spam, how ever I use social oomph to broadcast direct messages to all of my followers which can be a potential spam flag. Not good if all I’m sending out is a happy holidays and have a safe and happy new year, or check out my album, r product or what not. Here is the legaleeze version of this agreement between gtwitter and this company.

Under the terms of the settlement, the owners and employees of TweetAdder agree not to take part in “creating, developing, manufacturing, adapting, modifying, making available, trafficking in, using, disclosing, selling, licensing, distributing (with or without monetary charge), updating, providing costumer support for, or offering for use, sale, license, or distribution (with or without monetary charge), any software or technology designed for use in connection with Twitter’s service.”

so will social oomph’s ability to direct message all followers or a select group also get the ax? I guess time will tell. Here is a link to the full blog post below.
