Can I create a Twitter account with a URL?

Something like this: http://twitter.com/signup?name=NAME&pass=PASS&username=USER .

    The Twitter API does not support creating accounts, so it is not possible to create accounts programatically. See: dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1 – iglvzx Jun 9 '13 at 5:12

(Common) websites do not allow registration via GET request.

The are several reasons but the main are security and mass registration avoidance (easier with POST registration):

GET requests can be cached

GET requests remain in the browser history

    You welcome, some websites declare in their terms and conditions you may register an account only in the dedicated form. – Ofiris Jun 9 '13 at 4:56
