Obtrusive

Venu Satuluri, of Twitter:

With this new feature, you’ll receive personalized recommendations when multiple people in your network follow the same user or favorite or retweet the same Tweet. […]

Twitter for Android and Twitter for iPhone users will receive recommendations via a push notification.

Sounds terrible. It’s a good thing you can turn these notifications off, but it’s yet another reason why I’m happier using a third-party client.

Twitter user “Sacha” is quoted in the post:

So @magicrecs is a little bit magic. Unobtrusive, and quite cool.

It’s not unobtrusive any more.
