Help! We need an engineer or a programmer to create the “Real People” button for Twitter.
The primary job for this application would be to identify accounts that were operating as a bot and weed them out from accounts where real people are tweeting their messages. Conversations would skyrocket on Twitter, if everyone knew the only way their message would go out, was to actually tweet the message yourself.
Why wouldn't Twitter create the button? Their server load would actually decrease as marketers came to understand that their messages were not reaching the intended targets. Meaningful conversation would skyrocket as everyone would know that they could actually have conversations with real people.
How many people do you think are leaving their Twitter account dormant because of all the meaningless traffic on Twitter? You could bet that people would come back with the welcome change to the system.
Now if I can just get Twitter to pay me royalties on the idea…..
