Twitter followers – merchant spam

On a completely side topic, all of these blogs auto-populate to my twitter which feeds my status message to facebook.

The last week or so I have received several messages daily of new people following me on twitter. I click to view who the heck they are just to discover that they’re people who JUST created themselves a new account and from what I can tell, they’re just going through and “following” people so these people will visit them and hopefully obtain a few clicks. These are businesses.

I hope the people who work on twitter give the ability for people to decline or approve the act of following.
