Don’t follow anyone you don’t know and trust. Why? Because of late there have been a number of spammers infiltrating Twitter using shortened URL programs to “hide” bad links, meaning that someone could be sending you off to a link that might be nothing more than spam or, worse yet, might infect your system. Know before you click. Note that both and TinyURL have both put systems in place to try and block these spammers and hackers but they’re still out there so be careful!

    There are lots of problems related to the Twitter for the new ones but if anyone gets the info like you have given it is very good for us that we can prepare ourselves for not to pay these kind of bad experience !

    Frankly, I don’t see the value of twitter. I read one market research report that revealed that nearly half of all tweets was “pointless babble.” Only 9% had “pass-along value.” Perhaps only 4% was “news.” Okay, I’m a senior citizen, but I get Instant Messaging. I get MySpace, FaceBook and Friendster. Heck, I even get an occasional rap song, if the beat and melody are just right. But this SMS for the internet seems a bit too thinly clever — a bit too much fad and flash in the pan, for my tastes. Maybe there’s a Zen side to this. Anyone care to Enlighten me?

    It might be a fad (though I doubt it) but the top 5 places we get traffic to our site is via Twitter – so it works for us!
