For those of you who don’t know what twitter is, Twitter is an increasingly popular social-networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts.
Tweet Tornado, a software designed specifically for spammers and malware distributors allows individuals to create unlimited Twitter accounts, add an unlimited number of followers and send identical updates to multiple accounts through proxy servers.
What’s the purpose you ask? To deliver unwanted messages to unsuspecting Twitter users.
Unfortunately Twitter doesn’t have any kind of validation service for users and has the potential to become a haven for spam. Beware
