iLike is a service which allows you to list bands, songs, and venues that you like, rate them, and get notified when new stuff comes along.
I ran into a huge problem with their service recently, however, and I’d like to share that with you.
Every time I uploaded a video to YouTube, it would send a Tweet on my Twitter account about the new video. I’m sure I told it to do this at some point in time, but after some experience with the feature, I decided I did not like it. I want to broadcast those tweets at a more appropriate time, and put some different text in the tweet.
So I sign in to Twitter and revoke access. No change, my YouTube uploads are still broadcast to Twitter by iLike.
So I sign in to iLike and try to remove the Twitter feature, but cannot find a way to do so. Their Account Linking page doesn’t even show Twitter!
Strangely, it doesn’t broadcast to my Facebook account (because my Privacy option is set to allow Nobody! to see my profile), but still broadcasts to Twitter.
I looked up phone numbers for iLike. One listed iLike telephone number was actually a FAX number, and the other forwards to Information!
Next, I sign in to YouTube to revoke access. I browse to My Account > Account Settings > Manage Account > Authorized Sites and click Revoke Access.
Clicking this link just takes me to the YouTube home page, and does not revoke the access. I tried two weeks ago to revoke it, and again today, and it won’t come out. I tried removing it with Chrome and IE.
So, can anyone suggest a way to keep iLike from broadcasting on my Twitter account, short of cancelling one of my accounts?
