Call me warped but I love it almost as much as I enjoy sarcasm.
Ironic because just 48 hours after writing a post which details how to identify a Twitter spammer I find that my own account has been suspended.
I’m such a bad boy!
The reason for my suspension, I have been told, is the fact that I followed a huge number of new people on the service in a short period of time, a practice referred to as ‘aggresive following’.
Fortunately, the suspension is only temporary – I’ll be back in a week
My question today though is does ‘aggressive following’ make me a Twitter spammer?
I hope not as I totally despise spam and just wished to interact with a large number of people, though I now know that following over 1,400 people does make it rather difficult to keep up with everything they are tweeting!
Yay, I’ve been unsuspended already!
According to support, I was unwittingly caught up in a ’spam cloud’ whatever that is???
