You all know I’m a connoisseur of spam (and a little off topic, why is connoisseur so freaking hard to spell??). It’s insane, badly translated, nonsensical garbage and I can’t resist it. But did you know that Twitter has its own special brand of spam-sanity that’s as rich and tasty as what you delete from your blog comments on a weekly basis? Just look at some of the gems that have followed me:
Bio: “Successful Internet Marketer.”
Reality: Has fewer followers than me. Hasn’t tweeted in a month.
Bio: “Hello I am a network marketing coach who trains others on how to build there own blogging site and market themselves as an expert in there niche.”
Reality: Their. The word is their.
Bio: “Health education,weight loss,detox,detoxing,colonhealth,acai berry colon cleanse,detoxcolon,detox weight loss,detoxify colon”.
Reality: Stay away from my colon.
Bio: “I only one week join with twitter, but we have thousands twitter followers now , need know my secret?, visit :”
Reality: At best, you’re paying thirty bucks for hundreds of spambots. At worst, you’ll end up evicted from your house and unable to get a credit card because your identity has been stolen.
Bio: “Hot tramp you love so”.
Reality: Wrong on so many levels.
Bio: “You dreamed I was a very clean tramp.”
Bio: “Today i join to twitter, but we have thousands twitter followers now , need know my secret?,”
Reality: Clearly it isn’t proper grammar.
As with all spam, it makes me wonder how people can actually fall for it. Which they do, otherwise there wouldn’t be so much of it.
