So, there was this service on Twitter called “@FAME,” which was something of a weird/novel concept — basically, you install this plugin, and you got entered into a daily raffle. If you won the raffle, all the other FAME users would auto-follow you for a day. After a day, those users unfollowed you automatically, with the option to refollow. Cool idea, right? Well, Twitter didn’t think so — they banned the app for an undisclosed terms of service violation, saying it violated the spirit of the platform. The company says it’ll try doing this on another platform instead. Should they come to Tumblr?
I would love that!!
