Fluther questions have been harvested and reposted by any number of question accumulators and redistributors for who knows how long. It used to be on another “Q&A” site that hosted questions from all kinds of other “original content” sites, including Fluther, AnswerBag, Yahoo!Answers and others. It ain’ no thang.

I think it is a great idea. The link attached to the tweeted Q drives people to the site. I hope.
Unfortunately it gives spammers some undeserved airplay and circulation. While they get banned and deleted from here, their legacy lives on in the Twitterverse.

Maybe there should be a delay of 12 hours before Fluther Questions are retweeted. That way the bad apples are removed and questions are edited correctly.

@LuckyGuy don’t tell me the world has seen some of my stupid questions…

I thought we were getting more than our fair share of twits here!

Thanks for the link…my first look at Twitter.
Very uninspiring looking, I must say.

If it increases the traffic, more power.

No I didn’t. Interesting! I noticed the spammers right away. Funny but unfortunate.

:( I didn’t know that. I don’t like it. Makes my stuff FAR too public…

ibstubro's avatar

I hadn’t thought of that, @Dutchess_III. I would possibly be concerned, too, if I know any Twits.
Outside of Fluther, it should go without saying.
