message 1: by Rowena (new)

Rowena (rowenacherry) | 86 comments I've noticed a number of friendship requests (I welcome friendship requests) from faceless profiles giving an email address such as twitter_76543219@goodreads.com

(This is a made up example)

Does Goodreads provide email addresses?
Are these potential friends goodreads officials?
What is the tie up between twitter and goodreads?

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.

Rowena

If someone chooses to enable that without giving any other name info, the system uses that Twitter string to identify them. They're not really email addresses in the sense you think -- they bounce (or sometimes redirect, but mostly bounce). They're just Twitter-identifiers.
