One of my Twitter “followers” sent me a direct message that amused me the other day. Perhaps I have to give them credit for reading my mind, but they lose just as much for reminding me of the very idea that came to mind as soon as I read it:
“I’m getting paid every once in a while for tweeting [link removed] – just letting you know so you don’t de-follow. :)”
There’s always spam running rampant on that little site, whether through random tweets trying to get people to visit one site or join another. As a general rule, I’ll give someone the benefit of the doubt when I get a spam message from them. If the spam continues from the same account, I remove them from my list of Twitter “friends.”
They’ve got one strike left!
