Spam is starting to become a real problem on Twitter.
So many brands have jumped onboard and set up automated replies to tweets that contain references to the brand.
I find this highly annoying. I suspect I'm not alone in this.
Today's piece of Twitter spam is particularly weird.
I posted that I was culling a few live tracks by the Rolling Stones from my iTunes.
Moments later I had a reply from someone purporting to be a Stones fan.
Like most people sucked in by spam I clicked on a link.
My clever Macbook told me it wasn't such a good idea to have clicked on the link.
As you can see from the pic above I wasn't the only person to get this piece of spam.
Which as I said before is becoming a real problem. But what can we do about it?
And more importantly what are Twitter doing about it?
