Twitter Spam

20 08 2009

Off to a bad start this morning.

I opened my inbox to find a deluge (by my standards) of new followers on Twitter and instead of thinking “Mr. Popular” I thought “the spambots must be hard at work.”

And they were.

Of the new additions, were 12 13 almost identical profiles and each was using Twitter in an inexplicable manner to push what I can only presume is some porn.

And here they are.

Take it all in, because I fear this mosaic is a metaphor for where Twitter is headed.

Kudos to the spammers though, for at least choosing some ‘authentic sounding’ porn star names like Lauri Maddox and Billie Glover.

At least some thought went into that.
