Twitter is the platform of choice for realtime interaction. It’s too bad that more and more restrictions are being added, preventing the use of the platform for automated services just to protect from spam.
A solution would be to introduce an ‘automated badge’ that would show users that tweets or actions coming from such an automated account would be performed by an automated service.
Spammer would probably not use it since it would kind of defeat their purpose. And it would open up the possibility for new innovative applications of the platform!
