Twitter Spam

I have noticed over the past several day lots of new followers with familiar sounding Twitter celebrity like names.

Clicking through to the new followers site instead finds an impersonator of the well known and heavily followed Twitter personality.

Twitter impersonators usually have to employ a slight misspelling or underscore before or after their their more famous host.

Of the Twitter personality impersonator followers I have received in the last week, each have contained the same message and link within their updates:

Friends, “5 Steps to Twitter Success” was just released! Get your copy here.

Friends, if this is any indication of how spammers plan to experiment with methods for monetizing the Twitter community get ready for truckloads of more Twitter Spam.
