Spam spam spam spam

spamRecently, a fair number of spam tweets have been appearing using the #SUNDAYPICS hashtag. They’re easy to spot, as they mostly (but not always) have an egg avatar. The big giveaway though is machine-generated user names, such as FredspmjKjhhgdj. See the pic on the right for examples.

They don’t appear to be malicious – the one I checked appeared to be trying to sell a new website thing – but I’d advise you not to click on them anyway. You might want to report them for spam, too.

This has been a public service announcement.

A Yorkshireman in the green hills of Lancashire, UK Not a real wombat, obviously, or typing would become an issue. I do have short legs and a hairy nose, however. Oh, & a distinctive smell.
