Sex at Telnames

Post by 4444 on Wed 18 Jan 2017, 6:39 pm

Has Telnames' Twitter account been hacked or has Telnic switched the business model to sex?

Another old resource from Telnames continues to be a gambling site:

There is another "Telnames" site on Twitter - at https://twitter.com/telnames

It's run by a .TEL user - love this post:

Hey!  What a nice website!  http://www.telnames.com !  Looks like a good way to promote .tel domains!  Congratulations!

Telnic doesn't have a good brand strategy in place if one of their main brands leads to a site with this header:
Direct services at telnames.com have now been closed

Telnic must have realized the complete failure of the Telnames project.

I'm not so sure: in March 2017 all Telnic customers will get the failed Telnames template by default!

@whatthetel

Good help by you, but I doubt that Twitter will get active as long Telnic ignores that the account was stolen.

I doubt https://twitter.com/tel_names was stolen from Telnames Ltd.

Telnic/Telnames probably just closed it (as you can do with any Twitter account) once they felt they had no further use for it - given the message they placed at http://Telnames.com - and Abigail Milton just picked it up as a recently closed Twitter site with already existing free traffic.

Much like they let the http://YourBusiness.tel key promo domain drop which was used for a Telnames one-page example business site - it was subsequently picked up by a .Tel user.

Telnic/Telnames could regret letting this domain drop and now be under someone else's control - look at the home page http://Telnic.org and note the URL of the .Tel domain featured on the iPhone pictured !

http://MikeSeaton.tel

PS.  Not sure who Twitter "verified" (the blue tick by the name) at https://twitter.com/tel_names - Telnames Ltd. or Abigail Milton ?

Since all previous tweets from Telnames are still visible at their Twitter account, it's very probable that the account was hacked.
Twitter wouldn't let the old data active if the account gets transferred regularly to another user.

But Telnic doesn't care, because they don't want to use the account anymore.

NO MORE SEX AT TELNAMES !

It looks like Telnic/Telnames have now got their Twitter account back OK at https://twitter.com/tel_names - but check out 4 of their last 5 Twitter posts (showing example sites) at:

http://labeauty.tel
http://kihproducts.tel
http://craigiecabs.tel
http://sparklescleaners.tel

That's right - Dead Links used by Telnic/Telnames as example .Tel sites !

I guess that the initiative of 'whatthetel' arranged the deletion of the inappropriate content:
