Agree with guy above.

The spam was terribly ugly looking, annoying to people interested in bitcoin news and counter-productive to the cause of bitcoin making it look like a scam because of spammy adds.

Twitter did the right thing. That spam made Twitter unusable for me, and I haven't been using it.
Double-plus agreed. It was a fine idea, but I was getting people that added me and when I looked at their accounts they were just tweeting your stuff. Basically people were creating fake accounts for this.

In the end, you should have set some tough rules for number of followers, age of account, and limits on number of posts to reduce abuse. Whenever something is created to make money, the scammers don't take long to come out of the woodwork.

Hmm I'd have to disagree considering if you don't like the Spam just unfollow the twitter account -- I liked the service and its up to those that are retweeting posts to decide whats relevant and whats not. I don't think feed ze birds is a blame here for spam not one bit

I have to agree with Xenland here. The followers of the people re-tweeting the stuff always have the option to unfollow...

Thanks for your support, Xenland. This is also our understanding on the nature of Feed Ze Birds tweets.

To our critics: we are currently testing a system based Klout scores and other metrics which should help identify potential spam accounts. It is an issue that concerns us, as the value of Feed Ze Birds is made from the legitimacy of our user base. Hopefully, we can instate stricter controls soon.

We hope to have the service up and running again soon. Have requested that Twitter reinstate our application, and are waiting for a response as to what, if anything, needs to be changed to meet their TOS.

I don't follow accounts, I use:

https://twitter.com/#!/search/bitcoin

It's more a way of seeing the general market trends for me. Therefore important that I get a big picture look rather than a small circlejerk of friends preaching to each other Wink

Got a notice today from Twitter that all we needed to do was add "#spon" to each of our campaigns. I've done this, and they've re-enabled our application!

While Feed Ze Birds has been down, we've been addressing a couple of overdue development goals. We're going to finish these out and open up the site again by this weekend.

New features:
Better spam account recognition
Performance graphs on stats page
0 confirmation deposits

Great news!

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

I'm glad to hear you will be back online.
From what I have just read, it looks like #SPON is being forced on us by the FTC, not by twitter.
I wish the FTC would allow people to tweet whatever they please.

Wait, what? Why in the fuck are they having anything to do with it?

That is interesting! I was wondering why they were so strict about it...

Talk about regulating the internet. :/

Here are a few:

http://www.citmedialaw.org/legal-guide/complying-ftcs-disclosure-requirements

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/06/business/media/06adco.html

The F.T.C. said that beginning on Dec. 1, bloggers who review products must disclose any connection with advertisers, including, in most cases, the receipt of free products and whether or not they were paid in any way by advertisers, as occurs frequently.


http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2011/01/10/if-you-get-paid-to-tweet-disclose-it-uk-says/

Obviously the FTC thinks they own the world.
I think I will start a new feedzebirds campaign that says something like:

The #FTC threatens people with violence if they don't include #spon in their tweets.
Abolish the #FTC


I wish they would find honest work, and let free people be free.

What the ....? Do you really mean 0 confirmation deposits?  Huh You shouldn't accept deposits without a few confirmations (it's not hard to send out a non-legit transaction, which never gets confirmed) unless you mean transactions from an exchange or so...
