So why is forumotion following us on twitter?

Post by koimaster on December 21st 2010, 6:53 pm

Forumotion (@Forumotion) is now following your tweets (@watchlord) on Twitter


Following our posts on twitter makes it seem as if we are being spied upon as a forum which makes me very uncomfortable.

Bold and Colored text are reserved for moderation, by staff members only.

If you don't like it then remove the follow but blocking us. Twitter is just a nice way for us to follow our users. My question is if you don't want to be spied on then why have a twitter account? confused Plus you make it sound like the world is going to end because of this.

I didn't realize Forumotion had followed me until you made this thread, lol, I don't really use Twitter a lot at the moment, maybe I'll use it more if and when I get more members in my forum, hehe. But I don't see anything creepy or uncomfortable about being followed by forumotion. It's not like I share things on Twitter or do things within the forum that is spy-worthy, I don't have anything that is secret that could be spied on. It's not really a big deal if Forumotion sees it. Then again, I guess Forumotion have so many they follow, so why would they notice my messages among all, hehe. Razz

Ok, this is a good one! What a Face

Forumotion's Twitter page counts over 20,000 users! Damn, even I hadn't predicted that many mwii
Anyway...
ForuMotion is based in Nice, France. I can guarantee you there are less than 50 people running the company. Do you really think they have nothing else to do but to check every user going on their twitter account?! Rather than, I dunno;
> Doing their work
> Living their lives
Or is it you think they've decided to check a few users, and out of the twenty thousand and counting users they'd have magically landed on you?

Yes people can go on each other's pages on Twitter, it's the principle of the site. Don't like it don't go on it.
But No, No, No and HELL No, ForuMotion employees have much, much, much better things to do in life than to check out other people's twitter page

If we follow our users in the first place it's to promote their forums : when I see a user posting a tweet about a Forumotion forum, I usually retweet it.
As we have 21,000+ followers, that's a great opportunity for your forums.
Other interesting point, getting instant news about Forumotion and your forums.

When you have a public Twitter account, I don't understand how you can complain about spying. If you don't want us or anyone else to see your tweets, just set your account to private.
