Submission + - App auto-tweets false 'piracy confessions'->

netbuzz writes: "Japanese software maker Enfour, apparently fed up with seeing its products pirated, decided to take matters into its own hands, and, well, those matters have blown up into a public relations fiasco. An “anti-piracy module” released by the company Nov. 1 has been using customer Twitter credentials to issue impersonated tweets that read: “How about we all stop using pirated iOS apps? I promise to stop. I really will. #softwarepirateconfession.” The magician Teller is among the many who report having fallen prey to the dirty trick."
