    Twitter Deleting Spammers
    For all you Twitter users, I saw on the news this AM that Twitter launched a program overnight that deletes suspecting spammers.

    I woke up and noticed my followers were down about 30 or so and wondered what I said to make everyone mad so quick! But then when I turned on the news I saw Twitter had launched the program. I hope it worked properly or there might be some mad people out there.

    I like how Twitter is trying to keep things honest, in the true spirit of Social Media, nice work! Just like Mr. Haiko!

    twitter deleted spammers prior to this, I have reported a few people all who were suspended. Thats why my followers went down, I just thought they no longer liked me talking smack about their click bank books lol ohh and those gdi dingdongs, I know you all know what I am talking about those poor folks who run around in circles promoting gdi over and over and over again. lol

    Hallelujah. Maybe that person that keeps following me (even though I BLOCK them.. weird) that has the obscene/pornographic avatar got axed and will stop attempting to waste my time.

    I lost 100 followers overnight and was wondering what I was tweeting about that was so awful.

    All is said is that I went jogging and the weather was good. And 100 people stopped following me. Confused me.

    That's strange. I see see plenty of obvious spammers in Twitter. I wonder how they determine if you are a spammer or not.

    Hmm lets see how would twitter figure out who was a spammer.

    1) You only use an auto retweeting service
    2) You never start a tweet you only use all @ replies
    3) All you tweet are affiliate links
