      Strange. I had no idea linking was a violation. Hey, I rarely read tweets that lack links.

      But, it's a private service, not the public internet. Glad you're fixing that. :-)

      @dsearls: Its not, its having a twitter account that almost exclusively posts links that is a violation.

      Navarr, what harm does it do to have an account that's almost exclusively links? Isn't the NYT account almost exclusively links? Yet it is one of the recommended sites. Has anyone actually thought this stuff through? (Like Doc says, this could never happen on the public Internet, thankfully.)

      Navarr, why is "almost exclusively" posting links a violation?

      I don't disagree with you Dave - I think the way Twitter is treating NYT is the same way Apple treats Google with some of their iPhone apps.

      And @dsearls, Probably to ward off spam. Most spam accounts just post link after link to an external site providing no valuable content.
