Twitter Wants to Import Your Contacts (And Increase Your Activity)

We told you the folks at Twitter were clever, didn’t we? In case you missed it – they are.

In what we’re expecting is another example of Twitter’s “innovation through experimentation,” Twitter has come up with another way to increase your activity: importing your contacts.

It’s pretty clever actually. The more friends you connect with on Twitter, the more you’ll use it, right? Sure! So Twitter is now asking some users if they’d like to import their contacts:

Wouldn’t you want to do this, so you can “have more fun with your friends” online?

This is a great idea assuming you aren’t using Twitter incognito, of course. Hopefully there aren’t foolish folks out there who tip people off to their secret online trolling identities with a couple of clicks (though I secretly hope they do, don’t you?).

Have you seen this prompt – or others? Do you ever import contact like this? There’s a case to be made both for and against this practice, of course – where do you fall?
