Twitter Spam, from “JavaScript teacher”

By Xah Lee. Date: .

There is this guy “JavaScript Teacher” @js_tut, who kept spaming us. This is the 7th time he spamed me. I replied 2 times before, asking him to stop, but apparently he doesn't see it or ignored it. 2 yrs ago, he's struggling, no follower, bitching abut his marketing skills. Now, he seems to found marketing jackpot, by shady tactics. He now has 20k followers.

Apparently he's using a bot to spam, posting some 10 message per min per minute, each post hits ~14 people, with a link to programing question separate from the post, so that people who reply to the question thread don't see connection with his spam, and just thought a lot people like his questions.

he sells JavaScript react book and CSS book on amazon. But as far as JavaScript goes, he doesn't really understand it.

His CSS book, titled “Visual Dictionary of CSS”, the title is copied from my CSS tutorial, at Visual CSS, which was named “Visual Dictionary of CSS” for a while.

The name is from my Visual Dictionary of Special Plane Curves project, on the web since 1997.
