Twitter going after buy-more-follower companies
Melbourne, Aug 20: On Monday, Aug 17, uSocial.net, the web promotion company that allows Twitter users to purchase followers, claimed that Twitter tried to shut it down over allegations of spamming.
Leon Hill, CEO of uSocial.net, said in a press release that he'd been contacted by a brand management company hired by Twitter to accuse the company of using Twitter for spam purposes.
"The definition of spam is using electronic messaging to send unsolicited communication and as we don't use Twitter for this, the claims are false," Hill said.
Sources said that Twitter has yet to respond to a request for comment on the matter.
