All You Who Post Twitter Links... [View all]

Especially those of you who post the links and not much else, guess what?

They only lead to the sign-in page and nothing else is available unless you are signed in. I have never nor will I ever sign up for that troll factory...

So perhaps you could rethink your posts now that not many of us will see what you wanted us to see.

Twitter needs to die asap.
