Twitter Search Overrun By Spammers

Posted by: admin In: General|Twitter Tools

Today I attempted to use Twitter Search tool only to discover that Spammers managed to overrun it with Spam based on trending topics. I don’t like to be a doom and gloom but it doesn’t look good for twitter ability to control it. Basically tool became unusable! And here is what I mean… Take a look at image below: As you can see on screen shot out of 7 comments only 2 appear to be a valid Twitter Stream and one of them is in Spanish (I think) – making the search unusable. Looks like spammers identify Trending Topics and then simply post spam messages and include all the trending topics in it to ensure they get as much exposure as possible. I’m interested to see how Twitter will handle it as this can effectively shut down their Search Tool.
