    I have seen the Facebook like jacker, and the G+ jacker plugins. Both look very effective.
    I was wondering if anybody knows of a similar wordpress plugin, but one that works with twitter, forcing the "victim" to tweet out a link.
    Due to the viral nature of twitter, it seems like this type of tool could be incredibly effective.

    Hi, due to the way RT's work it is a different ball game to jack Twitter in this way. It would be a great tool but Twitter stepped up their game some time back and clamped down on BH behaviour across their site which is when some really good Twitter tools got took down.

    Shame really.

    What about an FB share jacker mate? Is that in the works?

    The FB share jacking presents us with the same issues as Twitter Jacking does. It's all related to the way that that sharing works on FB and it makes it harder to jack. That's not to say that it can't be done and we're 'quietly' working on various options for this :)

    With twitter the user would need to approve app, still do-able with a good click bait.

    While twitter is more secure with it's api , it allows you to do much more than Face Book, example: , change profile URL, change profile description, retweet, like, add followers, send dm and auto tweet.

    But the OP was asking about jacking which means the action of a RT would happen without the users knowledge. The Twitter API is flexible as it does allow a lot of things but it makes it next to impossible to jack anything on the Twitter site due to the way they have set it up.

    yeah but if they can get them to approve app they will be a slave. (you will have control until app suspended) (easy as saying, log in to this site using twitter) they only have to approve once, then 3 weeks later you can tweet on their time line etc.

    It isn't something I have ever done so I am making an assumption here but I would imagine they would shoot the app down in flames during the application/approval stage as they would see what it can do.

    its getting easier because more and more sites, say log in with facebook or twitter, but they no longer suspend app's, they restrict the API from "write" access to read only, so all you do is make another app to get up and running, take look at crowdfire app, this is a app on the limit, it spams from tweeters timeline and just gets away with it.

    check blackhat methods
    Code:
    htttp://hitfollow.info
    been goin 7 years every week changes app name, bet it still makes money or not worthwhile.
