Honestly, it’s probably a smaller deal than I make it out to be.
Best TrueTwit Intentions
I realize you mean well and seek to protect yourself. But ever since I first considered the irony and perceived the arrogance of someone sending an autobot to sniff out whether or not I happen to be bot spam, I feel offended.
Imagine, I took a chance on you. Maybe it was on a #FollowFriday recommendation, or someone retweeted you, or I searched a #hashtag and there I found you, however it happened, I read your tweet stream and thought you were a tweep I would like to follow.
Welcome To My World
Then your autobot sent me a DM (tacky, tacky, tacky) asking for TrueTwit verification. To which, I have only one reply: I am not a robot, but I have no interest in becoming a TrueTwit either. (What does “twit” mean anyway?)
The secret TrueTwit doesn’t tell you.
Most Twitter spam that gets read is sent by real people. They may put automation systems in place (just like you) to help them auto follow or manage their Twitter broadcasts, but again, they are not actual robots and will verify your TrueTwit DMs.
Besides TrueTwit was designed for an earlier Twitter that didn’t have the current spam protection and blocking abilities.
No Hard Feelings
Anyway, whether you are a TrueTwit or not, I welcome you to follow me, @tammikibler. Feel free to check out my tweet stream and see if I am the kind of tweeter you would want to read. Rest assured no robot will auto follow you.
