In my ongoing attempt to become a memeber of the Twitterati, i have been approving all the people that are following me. there are a lot of random people with like 30,000 followers and not much to share. (aside from guy kawasaki who has almost too much good stuff to share).
i was interested to see how spam has come on to twitter, if you look at the below example it ticks a couple of spam blocks;
1) hot girl (fake picture)
2) not much interest in it (bad follower to following ratio)
3) a couple of post only
4) trying to bump up stock prices
needless to say this is the only one i’m not followingRelated articles by Zemanta

You haven’t updated twitter in 2 days!! Wasn’t our Gamma mission worth sharing with the world??? Sorry for the cynicism I haven’t “got” twitter yet … Facebook status update is enough for me.
I haven’t got twitter yet either, but i’m slowly working on understanding it. not sure how much microblogging i can do tho, do i have the energy for it…
