So, I subscribed to this guy a week or so ago.   http://twitter.com/#!/bitrific

Basically, he just automatically pulls threads from these forums and posts them on twitter.  I don't know if it's automatic ( i'm guessing ) so he's just throwing up all of these troll threads and bullshit threads up on twitter for people to read.

Am I the only person who thinks this is a horrible thing to do?

Let people get information from solid sources.  Nobody needs to post threads full of speculation and unverified information on twitter for uninformed people to further skew the information.

I wouldn't have any issue if the threads were hand picked, but he's literally just posting random threads.

I wouldn't loose sleep over this.  There will be MANY things like this in the future, just patiently refute things if you can when/where you can.

I am learning everyday, and doing this on my own.

I realized that and unfollowed.

I just think it's a horrible idea to be pulling threads from here to post on twitter as if they are news headlines.  trolls creating threads, and uneducated people giving their theories and opinions comprises a good portion of  threads created here.

I think you're shooting the messenger a bit.

I just find it easier to access forum topics on twitter.
