I’m surprised that at this point in 2011 (almost 2012) that companies still think it is smart to sneak stuff onto users timelines when asking for auth information.
It is just as uncool as forcing users to opt-out of mailing lists and other forms of spam.
For example, this signup form for TimeKiwi…
…stuffed this into my timeline….
Unless you get explicit consent you’re just making enemies. Don’t do it, no matter how tempting it is.
Thing is, I regularly send tweets pimping apps I like to my timeline… do good things and there’s a pretty good chance that I won’t mind spreading the word at all.
Just please don’t spam.
