If you have an email account sent notices to your IMs when you have
email, those notices are not Spam, but the content of the message may

Twitter's just the protocol. The "you have a follower" message is not
Spam, but the act of following itself may be if the intent is to use
Twitter's delivery methods to deliver unwelcome content. 

If a user opts-out of receiving follower notices because of the
content of the followers' profiles then Spam has damaged the network
infrastructure on which Twitter is based.
