A disturbing trend, that it would appear that many Twitter users have experienced, is a significant increase in the number of fake followers who simply have what equates to a spam page and a link! Simply blocking the site is the obvious solution but the numbers have suddenly taken a noticeable increase forcing me to block followers on a regular basis.

The most recent ones were attempts to get the reader to click on what appears to be typical spam Porn, Advance Fee Fraud and Pharmaceutical links. Wondering what steps that Twitter is taking to alleviate this? It certainly appears that this has been emerging for some time and perhaps the more prolific Twitterers have been the initial target but it seems to have trickled down to the rest of us 😦
