Feedly Found a New Way to Steal Page Views From Publishers

Feedly has done it again, this time with links shared via Twitter. Nate Hoffelder:

In other words they slapped their brand on work they did not create. They want people to think of them as the source of the content, probably in the hopes that this will boost Feedly’s profile and its userbase. And to make matters worse they are pulling this trick both on the Twitter website and in the Twitter apps.

Seems pretty sleazy to me, especially as it’s opt-out, not -in.
