Twitter Bug Forces People to Follow You

Twitter Bug Forces People to Follow You

A few hours ago, a Turkish social networking site managed to discover an exploit within Twitter. The said bug allows users to force other Twitter users to follow them, with a simple ACCEPT @user typed within Twitter.

Gizmodo - For a while today, a Twitter bug let anyone force anyone to follow their accounts. It was a hilariously simple trick, and equally bizarre. Even better? This bug was discovered by accident, by a Turkish Twitter user.

Needless to say, the whole fiasco is worth a good laugh, especially if you wanted monogamous Twitterer like Conan O'Brien to follow you and "cheat" on Sarah Killen. For the full story on how the Twitter accept bug happened, head on over here.
