Only 3.75% spam?
Does that include or exclude the spambots that retweet random messages without attribution between their links to make automatic detection harder?
Definitely not included would be the spambots that follow given hashtags, and automatically follow anyone using them...
AC Thurs @ 19:40: "Twitter is for twits" - ITYM -i +a in that last word :) Just don't say it on radio :)
And what do they mean by "5.85% self promotion"? If they mean promoting websites etc. run by you, then surely some of that figure could be included in the spam count?
Does "news" include accounts that grab RSS feeds from news sites and tweet them?
I assume "conversational" is probably @ replies or mentions.
And talking of pointless babble and self-promotion... :D
As well as tweeting under my nickname, you'll find me behind a couple of twitterfeeds: @CovWeather and @LonWeather - both of which should be self-explanatory!
Now to spend an enjoyable evening blocking the 100s of spam accounts that will have read this and decided to start following me as a result...oh, and if you're deluded enough to genuinely want to follow me and read my random incomprehensible gibberish, might be a good idea to let me know so I don't include you in my next purge...
