Duplicating Twitter Accounts To Drive Page Views?

I noticed a bunch of funky Retweets yesterday in my Twitter account.

However, they weren’t true Retweets because each were constructed with RT @ -timcohn which effectively deletes an original Retweeter from appearing in the Retweet stream.

Duplicate Twitter Accounts

Duplicate Twitter Accounts

Each account had a woman’s name along with an attractive picture.

Each account also had the exact same number of Tweets (1952).

Although I have an idea why Retweeters may be stripped from a Retweet  Stream, I have no idea why someone would take the time to duplicate a bunch of Twitter accounts and then send traffic to a wide variety of non related non montizeable sites.

Any ideas?
