Twitter has hit 500 million users and is growing at over 1 million accounts per day.
While some analysts are questioning how many accounts are actually active, on average 13 new Twitter accounts are created every second.
I’m readying a new research project where nearly every Twitter feed I’m monitoring is filled with spam. I’m wondering how many of the 500 million Twitter accounts have been developed specifically for spamming purposes.
I’ll address Twitter spam in a best practices document I expect to release later this year. – Russ DeVeau
