FormSpring Easiest way to lose Twitter Followers

Formspring.me a free service for Social network users, allowing anyone to ask you a question. When you receive a question or ask one it will automatically post it to your Facebook wall, or Twitter profile. As formspring is slowly becoming known in the twitter world. Its slowly becoming annoying to some.


At the moment i am personally following 2 people on twitter that use the service “FormSpring”. Well to me its annoying as hell. Many users on twitter have been complaining about how the automatic update service is being used.

So earlier today i test out the service and answered “43 questions”. Well on my twitter account i noticed i lost a total of 32 Followers in less than 10minutes. Ouch!

Most users on twitter like the service as it doesn’t have update things like ” Shaq just leveled up to lvl 92 on Farmville, Join him” on your profile. But their is a vast growing rate of services that are now posting live updates on your twitter profile.

I lost 32 followers in less than 10 minutes after answer various random questions. And I have personally unfollowed a couple of people due to live updates.

This has me wondering “how will this effect twitter users?”

Will twitters well known reputation go bad due to live updating with applcations? Or will it just be hard to follow people that don’t use these new services? Let us know what you think in the comments below \/ .

  • I hear Twitter is aimed at the inevitable (far out on a limb) snap or fly.
    I do not need to ponder weights or the inclusive support of feathering to know why something is just holding a chat line for those filling them self with hot air to begin with. A simple means of judicial basking, like a pair of Robin’s filling on a imaginary worm. If the weight of the incredible length of titties that use it don’t end up compromising each other, I wont be surprised if the Fed. doesn’t fail to organize its own excuse for laundry in the clad excerpt of gainfully approached worm bait. That being the originality of house affairs. The contrary may lose esteem, but the reaction has to pay off. When has the Fed. ever been know to excuse them self from excremental proportionately, from such limb observance, to the advantage of the being preposterous to the extent of business involvement anyway. If they aren’t promoting contrary involvement, they are likely not to apologize for thinking there are no mutual loopholes that it maintain certain atmosphere. There this becomes the catch all. All legal specialty for acquaintances attributed to representation on intent to direction, as well as the flight to avoid worm driven marketing would cheapen the worth or lesson potential, if appeased in overall manageability for which marketing had all ready seen the swoop, or, as is dive, becomes the dividend of the research to the question of participation, and taxation start to impair its greedy judgment rights (so to speak).
