My understanding, @abcnews, is that you have a “sports” section for that. Or possibly “business”. Or, history tells us, “crime”.

@leslienassar @oliyoung @R_Chirgwin But if @TwitterAU is genuinely trying to fight spam, after 8 hours this has gotta be at the easy end.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@leslienassar @oliyoung Yep, this is why I say @R_Chirgwin is wrong to say it’s “trivial”.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@leslienassar @TwitterAU It’s a tough job to detect at the volume Twitter deals with… except that there’s now dozens of human spam reports.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@leslienassar @TwitterAU Oh, not the storefront. The tweets themselves. They’re 100% identical from dozens of unrelated accounts.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@R_Chirgwin @traceyb65 @TwitterAU “Trivial” is Dunning-Kruger. It’s never trivial. But this is certainly low-hanging fruit, yes.

I don’t know that I agree with that comment, but it does seem to have a certain logic to it.

via TweetDeck

Why? Because the hard core of libertarian capitalists that see startups at the answer can’t share their toys. (3/3)

via TweetDeck

They’ll get everything they want. Result? They’ll still keep failing. And they’ll still keep whinging about no support. (2/3)
