Twitter Spam Farm 2011

By Xah Lee. Date:

Spammers are everywhere, and this week there's egregious one on Twitter. It grabs part of my blog article and put it on its own ad-ridden website, with no link back, and has 10 different Twitter accounts all tweeting it. Here's a screenshot:

Also, it seems to change some of its account pictures every day. Usually some innocent-looking chick.

The short URL they used is 〔http://bit.ly/inLQeY〕. It redirect to this 〔http://freewebhostingreviews.info/my-web-server/xah-lee-at-blogger-rsync-windows-to-unix-file_25601374X35t_Jun2011.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter〕.
