Twitter Spam Is Already Happening

Filed under: phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 1:11 pm CommentsComments (4) 

I have no idea who these people are, but they’re following me. Why would they do that?

To get links. It’s always about links. Notice the sexy female avatars? :lol:

It will be interesting to see how Twitter responds.


  1. Interesting definition of sexy there Dave ;-)

  2. They simply want attention, Dave, and by following you they’re hoping to get some. Just block them, or better yet, follow @spam and send a direct message with their username in it.

  3. Hi, Mark, you should not use terms like “sexy” in your comments as Akisment flagged it as spam. :-P I think it’s a common perception that the Internet is more male than female. By using female avatars, I am betting these spammers are hoping they’ll be given more freedom to post their bogus stuff.
