An Open Letter to Twitter Spammers
If you’ve been on twitter for a while – you might have experienced this thing, you know, called, spam. Lots and lots of it. Everyday. So here, I write an open letter to all the twitter spam accounts.
Dear Twitter spammers,
Hi. Um, we’ve been seeing each other a lot lately. You are the first thing I see in my mentions sometimes. And that ain’t good. I go to your profile. I see a button which says “report for spam”. You have started to push my buttons. Hence, I push your button too. And I don’t feel a hint of sadness, mind you.
I know, you have different shades to your personality.
Sometimes, you tell me to buy stuff I don’t need. Sometimes you send me links like “Click here [Link] to know ways to raise your teenage kids better!! You can be a better dad!!” I am a 18 year old girl. Target marketing fail, anyone?
Sometimes you tell me ways to get 1000 followers at once, sometimes you tell me to click on *those* type of links which my mom would not like (I’m a good girl, ya know).
You try to give me a free iPhone and iPad.
I’m tempted. I like free things.
But better sense prevails and I sacrifice it and reject your offer. Sometimes you send me links to get FREE tickets for a vacation to Hawaii. Ah, I control myself and sacrifice that too because I know, you’re a liar, a cheater and just fake – I don’t trust you. Sometimes you don’t even have your real picture on twitter! You’re just…..an egg. I don’t like eggs.
You send me links when you add me to your mafia family. NO, thanks, I have my own family. And OH! I just added you to my ‘blocked’ family.
Sometimes you send me just links. Only links. I do not like that. Really, I don’t. Did I stress that enough? Once more: I DO NOT like it.
You even get personal and DM me your ads. I am getting annoyed at your constant interference in my twitter life. I need space!
I hope I won’t see much of you henceforth. It breaks my heart (not really) to say – See you never again. KTHXBAI.
Lots of hate,
Me and every human active tweeter.
Haha Good one Nicky! I really liked it 😀
Thanks Shilpi! Glad you enjoyed this article! 🙂
You hit the nail on the head Nicky. If only those T’spammers/bots could see this… Hmmm! One thing I always wonder about is why Twitter still can’t lay a solid set of regulations for these sort of accounts!

I know right? There must be more stringent rules for spammers. As always, thanks a lot for your comment! I’m very grateful! 🙂
This post is gonna reach all the spammers don’t worry Nicky 😛
LOL, yeah I hope so~!
Nice write up! Spam it across twitter to weaken spammers a bit.
Thank you! 😀
I Love Eggs!!! Uhm I mean I loved them boiled! and you just burnt them.. hahaha. Twitter will hopefully use this post as a block/delete spam account reminder…
I am a spam hater too, I think this is the first time I like to be called a hater though.. hehe
LOL! 😀 thanks for your comment! Yep, proud to be a spam hater! xD
Hahaha! Nice one, dearie! 🙂
Haha well done Nicky 🙂
Fun, but unfortunately so true.
Take care of your twitter account!
LOL thanks for your comment!
Hmmm…how about spam & eggs?
Anyway, I’d sign this letter, too!
ha, Thanks Carl!
> You even get personal and DM me your ads.
How can they send you DMs, unless you’re following them in return?
Hi Ivan. Do you know, if one of your friends on twitter clicks on a spam link, your friends can unknowingly start sending you spam through DMs too? It’s a form of indirect spam~ I just wanted to cover all sorts of spam in this post. Thanks for your comment.
Excellent Post Nicky! I really, really enjoyed this one! I love Your playful, Witty side Girl! Keep on Blogging! *HUGS* :))) <3
Thanks for your constant support Ellie! 🙂 xoxo
I know what u all saying is true. So? U expecting them to read this post? LOL
And btw, Nice post.
You know, I wrote this post assuming that people will have a sense of humor and enjoy this post – which I see that you did. Hence, mission accomplished.
Thanks a ton 🙂

Where there is game there will be gaming. I think TWITTER the company could do a lot to quell some of the Twitter Spam problems. But why would they reduce the number of “users” significantly? It would hurt their growth trajectory.
Thanks for keeping us thinking about using Twitter honestly.
