Has Twitter tipped over the edge into a tin of spam!

April 17th, 2008 by Lloyd Gofton


First of all – thanks to Wadds tech blog for making me laugh-out-loud this morning with his stop twitter spam blog post – good post!

The highlight was this little round up: “Check out these fools: Braun Shavers, Invisus Direct and Wordframe. And my personal favourite Premature Ejaculation.” – Funny!

This reminded me of a post that I’d seen the day before The Epitome of Faux “Social Media Experts about so called social media experts that don’t have a scooby doo! (some good comments at the bottom of that post too).

We all know that Twitter is hugely popular at the moment, with what seems like 5 new applications coming out a day, and this has had a knock on effect and brought in the spammers by the bucket load. There is even a new blog called Stop Twitter Spam – thanks for the tip Wadds!

Unfortunately this is just going to get worse until every one moves onto the next big thing and then the whole process will start again!

“In a crowded and confusing market I have always felt that well thought out PR campaigns deliver far more bang for the buck. This is especially true when it's with creative partner companies such as Liberate Media. Traditional marketing and ad spend can never focus on your target audience in the same way that opinion pieces and editorial can.

“I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Liberate Media's understanding of the market place as well as the technical issues is second to none.”
