I finally had it with getting direct messages on Twitter asking me to click on a link to validate with TrueTwit because I tried to follow someone. So I did a Google search and found this helpful blog post by Mary C. Long. Everyone who uses TrueTwit or is thinking about doing so should read this.
One of the best things I learned is that if I do not validate with TrueTwit, I am not prevented from following the person who DM’d me. I confirmed this by checking the TrueTwit FAQ.
So, beginning now, I’m ignoring all the validation requests and I no longer have to view the advertisement and type in some lame phrase. I was going to stop validating anyway, but now I am relieved to know that by ignoring TrueTwit exactly nothing happens other than I am spared from viewing an advertisement which serves only to make money for TrueTwit.
