Wonder if any of you guys can help explain something to me.
Why or what causes repeating tweets? For example (and there are loads
of these if you look hard enough!)
Why would these accounts be posting the same tweet? It's done via
API, obviously by robotic/spam accounts as they appear to be following
lots of people but no one following them back. How do these spammers
identify which tweets to repeat? (they don't even retweet!) What's
their purpose/goal? Should I just report them as @spam as I come
I did look for an FAQ or previous post, but couldn't see anything that
matched, although plenty of articles regarding twitter spam! Seems to
becoming more and more of a problem.
Help cure my curiosity :)
