140 Characters of SPAM

How has Twitter affected or been affected by the world of spam. Now I’m not talking about the food stuff but the unwanted electronic stuff mainly associated with email.

At least the 140 character limit with Twitter has made “the spammers” refine their message for the greatest impact. So hopefully we’re getting better spam, right? Think of it as new and improved spam!

It is impressive (but mostly incredibly annoying) how some people robots have used it. As an example, you mention iPod, iPad, or any other Apple product and you get get tons of replies full of links to iffy websites with ‘amazing opportunities’ just for you!

It can be difficult to escape it so how do you deal with it?
