Twithead Spammy Douche-Tard

I’m not very popular by twitter standards, I don’t follow very many people and I certainly don’t have too many followers. My list is manageable and full of people who I find interesting in some respect and it’s a list that I can keep up with.

I’m also really bad at following people back, I figure if people are going to follow me, then their going to follow me. If they tweet at me, and it’s not spam, I’ll respond and probably start following them. If there isn’t going to be any interraction, and you’re not someone that I’m fan-sessive about, then I don’t ever follow, I also drop accounts that I don’t find entertaining or interesting in some way.

So, today I get a notification in my email that I have a new follower.  I usually go to check out the profile to see if it’s obvious spam, or if it’s someone I might choose to follow back.

Ok, profile looks interesting. Will follow for a day or two to see if I’m interested in what this person has to say.

Two hours after I decide to go ahead and follow @MeadMuse, I get a direct message…

It’s a fucking auto-response/follow gadget and a link to their personal website. WTF! I’ve been spammed, and shadily.  What I find outrageous is, 1. I didn’t see it coming, and 2. You fucking followed me, I returned the favor (that’s what I get for using twitter etiquette) and you’re going to fucking spam me?

FUCK YOU!

I un-follow you, I hope you turn into a fucking pumpkin, and I hope your site get’s eaten by hackers and finally, I hope that your dick falls off, you spammy fucking bastard.

FUCKING CARP!

    i had the same problem with the same account. thats why i try very hard not to follow accounts that are constantly advertising or promoting something. unfortunately though, more than 50% of the posts under the pagan, etc hashtags are promotions and stuff. its annoying. i’d like to see more things about the lives of people, not posts by people that just want to make a quick buck.

      Melinda, thanks so much for the comment. I hope when you had the same trouble that you reported the user for spam. I agree, the hashtags which should be a great tool are turning into easy ways for people to sell their wares.

      I know I’m using it to promote a blog and to spread the word about what I said, but I think it’s different for people to share their blogs and thoughts, we’re not making any money off it.

        links to blogs i dont mind. i love reading blogs and i admire people that start them. i have this insecurity problem where i keep thinking nobody would find what i say interesting so ive always been too afraid to start one. no. its the “my books are being sold on kindle”, “im selling this wand/tarot bag/whatever on etsy”, etc etc etc that i cant stand. its slightly funny cuz i bet you the same people would turn around and tell a fledgling witch that they dont *need* any products or items at all to do magick..

    The twitter account was set up for me and that auto reply was something I wanted to address as I do prefer to personally make my replies. I’m not a spammer. I am real person who is active in the Community and for the Community.

    By the way, I don’t have a dick.

      I really don’t care if one is active in the community or not, You followed me, I returned the follow, I got spammed with auto-response text and a link to your site, in a direct message. Personally, I see that as spam. I didn’t ask for the link and I don’t think it matters if you created the Twitter account or not, as it is in operation under YOUR NAME, you’re the proprietor, and you are accountable for the things that link to said account.

      Also, Damn, my apologies for thinking you had a dick.
