Twitter says no to auto follows, yes to curation

The microblogging site releases new developer rules for third-party services.

Twitter has updated its developer guidelines, killing off auto-follow features and loosening the reins on curation services.

That means developers of third-party applications won't be able to let users automatically follow someone who follows them or suggested follows. But Twitter is reducing its restrictions for services that gather and display tweets, like Storify. So curation is OK, as long as it's done manually.
