A Current Twitter Spam Method Doing the Rounds

With a large percentage of the 250 million iOS users (iPhone/iPad) worldwide about to start downloading iOS 5 over the next few weeks the social media platform that will get a boost is Twitter.

Twitter has been integrated into iOS 5 at the operating system level so that:

“This means that you’ll be able to sign in to your Twitter account once and then tweet with a single tap from Twitter-enabled apps, including Apple’s apps—Camera, Photos, Safari, Contacts, YouTube, and Maps. And developers of all of your favorite apps can easily take advantage of the single sign-on capability, letting you tweet directly from their apps too.

Building Twitter into iOS 5 truly creates the easiest way to share everything that’s happening in your world. Take a picture, tap “Tweet”. Tweeting has never been simpler.”

The interesting thing about the iOS market/devices is that it is largely used by people with disposable income, some thing of interest to marketers everywhere. This is another reason that you should now be looking at Twitter as a business operator if you haven’t so far.

Facebook still rules the roost in terms of minutes spent online and numbers but the figures for Twitter are pretty awe inspiring too.

Its these numbers and the viral nature of Twitter that help propagate messages and ideas – for good or for bad.

In this video I want to show you just one method people are using to take over other people’s Twitter accounts. Hopefully you’ll be forewarned.
