New York Comic Con Sends Tweets From Attendees Without Permission

New York Comic Con is ON! But attendees got a surprise when tweets praising the event were sent from their accounts without their permission.


Apparently, this year attendees were allowed to pre-register their badges, equipped with a RFID chip, online which gave them the opportunity to tie their social media accounts to the badges. They were not warned, however, that tweets would be sent out on their behalf as a result.


Although it has been somewhat entertaining to read the attendees reaction to the fake tweets.

It's a weird move on the organizers parts seeing as it's pretty safe to assume that anyone attending #NYCC is probably going to tweet how awesome it is anyway. When it comes down to it, nobody likes to be told what to tweet.

We went to San Diego Comic Con this year. Check out our recap:
