Is This Twitter Spam?

I performed a Twitter search this morning for “SEO.”

Here is the list of results I got:

I clicked on this one:

Clicked on the URL, and got this:

So, being of a suspicious nature, I clicked on “about” and got this:

Of course, that’s where I bailed out…but if I hadn’t, who knows? Perhaps I would just be helping an Internet Marketing person drive traffic to their site, but in reality, I suspect there could be more to it (virus, twitter hi-jacking, etc.)

Then I went back to the list and realized that most of the Tweets were from members with

1.     a female name

2.     a photo of a young woman

3.     no bio

4.     very few followers

5.     a following list of 0

and when I investigated further, I kept getting the same “Congratulations!” page.

How lame! Using Twitter to spread your message the way it was intended is so easy: create a profile, search for people of “like mind”, start sharing info, learn and grow your following. Spammers spend a whole lot of time trying to figure out how to beat the system, but the system is set-up for success already! What a waste of time and energy!
