First of all, there is only one form of spam - it's *unsolicited* messages sent massively. Second of all, tell me, please, in what way creating, let's say, 100 accounts just for tweeting weather forecasts for different cities is a spam? I'm not talking about mentioning there random nicknames or something like that to get new followers, of course. Just pure forecast, without any links. Third of all, why do you think those RSS feeds will be useless? Maybe it's more convenient for some users to get updates with Twitter than with Google Reader.
