Twitter is using Law to deal with Sapmmers

Now Twitter will also use law with technology to deal with spammers.  Any website which becomes a hot property on Internet faces first attack from spammers and Twitter is facing the heat. Twitter which now has more than 140 million active users and 350 million tweets daily certainly a great a target for spammers. Twitter is more attractive to spammers because of the Twitter’s open and straight architecture. Twitter’s strongest point which makes it such an extraordinary tool also acts as a soft point which spammers are constantly targeting. If you use twitter then you know that how spammers start following you and it is really annoying removing or blocking them.

Today morning as per a new post on the Twitter blog Twitter has filed a suit in federal court San Francisco against five of the most aggressive tool providers and spammers which Twitter has identified. As per the blog Twitter has filed the law suit to

-Directly hit the source of these tool providers.

-They have not taken every one, picked five most aggressive one so that it could send a message to other spammers also.

Last week Tweeter introduced new anti-spam measures within Twitter to more aggressively suspend a new type of @ mention spam. Twitter also uses it’s own our link shortener (t.co) to analyze whether a tweeted link leads to malware or malicious content.   Both of these new tools has helped Twitter to shut down many accounts and prevented user from visiting websites which can be dangerous for user. The most effective tool can be a user only who can block any particular user and report about them.

The legal move which Twitter has taken must have already send the signal to all the spammers that what is present in Future for them. So technology combined with Law will make a deadly combo.
