New York Comic Con is Hijacking Twitter Accounts
If you're on twitter you've likely been hearing about what a great time everyone is having at New York Comic Con. Well, that's because someone at NYCC thought it would be a good idea to hijack attendees twitter accounts. They were able to do this if users opted to use twitter to activate their RFID badges. Many apps wish to have access to "post on your behalf" but what made this extra strange and rage inducing was that the tweets were written praising the convention as the attendees.
Statements like "So much pop culture to digest! Can't. handle. the. awesome." or "I can't get enough #NYCC" all with the hashtag NYCC and a link to their Facebook page. Needless to say, this didn't go over very well with the people who were affected. Which even included a few people in the gaming industry such as Brian Crecente and Greg Miller.
Comic-Con has since apologized and turned off the feature allowing them to do this, but they'll definitely be hearing about this for a while. I think its only fair that they give the people affected by this access to their twitter account for a day. At the very least we'd have some entertainment, that's for sure.
Dear Chad James I love the show Death Battle very much and the episodes so far have been getting better with the ideas. During a search on youtube two years ago, I came up with a special episode idea but at the same time I wanted to make a mini movie from a story i written and an old youtube video I found. If it is possible, will you join me in my project along side with your partner, Ben Singer? I will explain the whole story and concept better on skype or on cam If you allow me. Please? Your humble fan- Jose Gonzalez aka NinjaKio.
Nothing good is going to come from this oversight.
