When you’ve been on Twitter recently then you’ve definitely observed the number of twits spam that is starting to show up. It can starting to look like my email inbox! And so I went buying a way to determine who’s a spammer and who’s not, because with just over 5, 000 followers and pursuing, and twitter spam gets smarter, it’s harder to share with!
I can’t even get started to tell you how many twitter spam information I block per day, it’s ridiculous! Come on, man do you really have to @reply to me with your spammy link? My spouse and i guess it’s earning a living for a lot of people with very low proportions, for a limited time anyways. Until Twitter understands how to weed them out better.
Consequently I attended Google and searched for twitter trash, of course, and came across a story on Mashable about TweetBlocker. Now this sounds interesting.
They take Twitter profiles and provide them a grade based how long the profile’s recently been around, the ratio of followers to following, and if people report twitting spam on the users. Makes a great one-location to keep up with this stuff!
My credit score for my profile was A+, so I’m no spammer. I did notice that several of my real life friends who aren’t tweets spam had low ratings, despite being long-time twits users. So it is not fully. Which is why they may have grades from A – F.
This allows you to unfollow and block everyone depending on their certain grade (or you can pick individuals), that i promptly did with everyone who was ranked a D or an F. The C degrees were hard to identify, so I left them as-is.
Tell me what you think and how it works for you! And what’s your spammer score?
By the way, the best way to tell if someone is a spammy profile — you’ll notice the account picture. If it’s some porn model, a wad of cash, or something stupid silly like this. Or perhaps a profile picture you might have seen like a 1, 000 times already. That’s a good easy sign of a spammer. I love to hit “unfollow” and block on these people real quick! That way I can see what my real friends are tweeting!
