FloresGirl Twitter Supsended, A Victim of Spatwitters and twimmers

I could never find a good use for Twitter. Really, are we that insecure we have to be connected to the world 24×7? As a writer I don’t mind being alone nor do I hesitate to talk to myself when alone, after all, it’s the one way I guarantee at least one intelligent conversation during the course of the day. But then I thought why not use Twitter to highlight some of the more pithy comments from Flores Girl. I have been doing so since May and have a garnered a few followers and a lot more of the stupid spammers I called Spatwitters or twimmers! I want to give away book and they want to sell me their moronic services.

On Friday I got a ton of followers in a two hours spam, you got it Spatwitters at work selling me new get rich schemes, Internet marketing secrets, SEO and other crap I don’t much care about. So I was away on vacation in Montauk when this all happened. Guess what happen? The mental giants at Twitter suspended my account! Can you imagine getting your email blocked because you received too much spam and you did everything you could to protect yourself? Amazing! Here is my reply to Twitter:

Wait a second, I get spatwitted (Twitter spammed) on Friday and you suspend my account? What prescription meds do you people take at Twitter? I don’t get it? Go after the idiot spammers in particular the BS like http://socialmediaclicks.com. They flooded my account with over 35 followers, all pushing http://socialmediaclicks.com, while I was away on vacation. I don’t have all day to check the veracity of who is following my novel particularly when I am away. Block their idiot accounts not mine otherwise Web 2.0 is going to look like that same crap we have on Web 1.0! This is great fodder for my blog, thanks nitwits!

I will keep you posted about twimmers and Twitter’s inadequate response to this serious threat to the viability of their platform.
