its friggin twitter... who cares who follows you? it doesn't affect you in one bit in any way at all. i can't think of one reason why it would matter.

this is borderline paranoia


allow me to make it full blown paranoia.

twitter = NSA
Facebook=NSA
Myspace = Fox = Mossad = CIA
Google = NSA
WikiPedia/Leaks = CIA

They started following me the day before yesterday too. It's simple, they want to keep up with the best site for these topics on the internet.


Can't say as I blame them either.

If you don't want them following you I imagine there's a way to remove them right? I don't really use Twitter so I don't know.

They just added me too. Took long enough.

I do not tweet or anything from the account but I am thinking of getting rid of twitter anyway, this just made my procrastination shorter.

Actually, what they're doing is typically referred to as "Follow Trolling," an attempt to boost their (apparently low) list of followers by hoping those they follow in-turn follow them. There's even automated software hackers use to follow hundreds of people on "Day 1," and un-follow any that didn't reciprocate on "Day 5."

It's a lazy-man's way of attempting to boost their social network sphere of influence. And, clearly, really bad manners.

I agree about it being "bad manners". If I didn't know what their site was like already, this "follow trolling" of theirs would have turned me off them anyway.

@Springer: Yeah there is a way to block them. I have, and I also reported them to Twitter for spam.

You have uncovered the real truth: ATS and GLP are one in the same (gasp!!)
and are BOTH Gov. special ops projects designed for surveillance and to control our minds and strip our freedoms!

OR....this is a thinly veiled attempt by you to gain followers on Twitter - either way it is interesting!

I feel bad that I'm not being followed. What are you all doing? Pick me! Pick me! Glp.

But, with all of the information that get's thrown around the Internet, this tweeting and facebook friending doesn't surprise me. I wonder why they haven't done it sooner than now, to be honest.

I say it's harmless.

Some people get a little too parnoid.

Now, I'm off to make myself more attractive to GLP....come on, come get me. Tweet Tweet!

GLP is full of loons. I had been posting there for a while but realised that most people who are regulars on the board are just plain crazy. Half of the "facts" that get posted have no sources, yet it all gets taken as gospel and anyone who points this out is instantly labelled a shill.

Also they really don't like it when you discuss the true identity of the owner and head mod of the site. Get you banned rather quickly. They only recently started the whole twitter and facebook thing. I think more than anything they want to work out the true identities of the people posting on their site and other conspiracy sites. Don't trust them.

There are a lot of ways GLP could have found you. On my Twitter homepage there are always little boxes suggesting people I might want to follow, usually based on people who follow people I follow and so on and so on. They might also use the Twitter directory, if you're in it you might be selected because of your chosen categories.In short, there are many, many ways they could have found you.

Personally, I am followed by many people with views I don't hold, especially RWNJ's, fundamentalist churches, and others. I don't mind hearing people who may disagree with me, so I often follow them back. If they truly, deeply offend me then I unfollow them.

In short, you have been approached by someone who wants your attention. You don't have to follow them back if you don't want to see what they have to say. You could also DM and insist they stop following you, if you feel really paranoid about their motives.

Twitter is a social site. I myself don't get bent out of shape if someone I don't feel has anything in common wants to follow me. It's as if someone I don't care for tries to strike up a friendship with me. In a way it's rather flattering. As I said earlier, I don't have to follow them back.

Well in my OP, I asked if they were doing this for advertising, for recruitment to their site, or to spy on ATS topics.

It looks like many of you think it is just for advertising. To question the motives of GLP isn't "making a tsunami out of a raindrop" IMO, but if that's your opinion, that is fine with me.

What bothers me is how many ATS'ers tweet and facebook. Conspiracy theorists are paranoid

You have to hijack your wireless from a neighbor and use second-hand laptop.

There are RULES to follow people. Now delete those accounts soldier and man the
bank of surveillance monitors...stay alert!!




edit on 16-9-2010 by rival because: (no reason given)



that is what is suprising me too.. I don't get the "deny ignorance expose yourself" connection. But eey that's me, I'm just a dumbass

Yep me too. I'm in Australia. I am a twitter account holder but I never use it. My profile isn't filled out and I prob have 3 posts on there. I came across the notification in my emails last week that GLP was now following me. I agree, went to website once and found nothing special. I have no idea why they would be following me.
If it makes any diff a bad feeling came over me when I saw it.......it has obviously not sat well with others as it's now on ATS.

i dont want this to be a super short response so ill try to fatten it up for you.

i originally woke up a few years ago when i was ABOUT to join the navy, i stumbled across ATS and ever since have been going between all the websites of similar stature and nature.

GLP is among the list of some of those websites, now, we all know ATS and abovestopsecret is a banned word on glp and can even get you banned just for mentioning it there. i have an agenda of love, peace and denying ignorance, and i must say, the mods in glp voice chat hate me, they ban me for any reason they can conjure, so i hide my name and use a number of ip addresses there.

we are also aware that glp is a cia operation, a data mining operation to be exact, they spread disinfo, they pin nonsense and they will bury the truth or even delete the truth from the forum.

now it is their site and they do what they will, but i must say once you read their "disclaimer" you can tell something fishy is going on.

i have been to the site on and off for a year or so, but im sick of it honestly and had to stop going a few months ago honestly. i cant even count how many times ive gone into the voicechat and they were spreading the lies as the truth, so i dont know what the hell is honestly up with that website.

now, i know it seems im bashing them, and oh well, but in all actuality im just stating my honest opinion from my own experiences there.

dont get me wrong, there are SOME users who use their board for the exposing of lies and the pursuit of truth, but as stated before, they will get banned and such as stated before.

now if GLP is randomly going to OTHER sites and following their users on twitter, that may or may not be an issue, as we know sites like glp make a reputation but taking news from other sites and posting them on their own board.

i am 100% sure glp is a cia operation, ive seen the proof, and im 100% sure facebook has become one as well, im actually pretty sure the whole inter-web has become a data mining operation for many corporations/cia/military etc...

id block them if i were you.

I am being followed by GLP as well and now a Survivalsun group or person started following me as well. I have never tweeted before, but I think it is time to have some fun with these spammers, maybe make up some bogus story and make them look really stupid.
