Unfortunately most of the ads either looked spammy, or had been worded as though I endorsed the product. I didn't allow the ads through, instead hoping to earn a few dollars from affiliate sign-ups.
Then I discovered twitterfeed, a service which tweets your latest blog post. For some reason, Magpie hates twitterfeed and will suspend your account if your automatic tweets rise above 15%.
Over then next few weeks Magpie's bot automatically suspended then reinstated my account, prompting me to ask what gives them the right to dictate how I tweet and request my account to be deleted.
Magpie promptly ignored my request, but several weeks later I received notification my account has been terminated:
in accordance with our Terms and Conditions, we had to permanently terminate your Magpie account. Your remaining account balance has expired.
Reason: TERMINATED BY MAGPIE: Many of your tweets were posted in an automated manner, e.g. by aggregating RSS feeds.
Please refer to the following URL to learn about our T&C:
Thank you, best regards,
