Twitter – the latest “pre-ticked box” email offenders
I’ve been wondering why lately I have been receiving additional emails from Twitter – mostly about things I am not interested in.
Turns out Twitter are the latest culprits who “pre-tick” marketing preference boxes – see below
I’m just not sure why Twitter feels the need to pre-tick this stuff – why not send out an update email (once) and let us all know about the new email preference options and allow ME to opt-in rather than have to opt-out.
This is lazy marketing – and eventually consumers will start to rebel against companies that don’t respect consumer’s preferences.
Un-ticked boxes is the new black in marketing. If I opt-in I really do want to hear from you.
