A little spam is treatable. Block, report. But it keeps coming back, like pesky roaches.
I agree with @timmmmyboy – why is there not even a little bit of logic applied at the door?
Here is the most easy kind of twitter spam I bet some middle school kids could write the filters for. This nut job tweets some link and uses “via @cogdog” to suggest I had tweeted it:
I mean how hard is it to check against my tweets to know I never posted said link? Badda-boom badda bing, spammer- tweet goes to trash, spammer account goes to dev/null.
But I guess its way too hard.
It’s still a sad annoyance of a trickle. But at the same rate of flow…
And it is programmatically doable. Would it take a super computer?
Paging @twitter… please help. Maybe you just need some new technology?
