Twitter is Winning Its Fight Against Spammers

twitter logoNot too long ago, spam on Twitter was quickly becoming a serious issue that made searching for any popular topic on the service’s own search engine almost pointless. Spammers would regularly hijack popular terms by polluting the search results with nonsensical tweets that included the popular keyword and a link to a spam site.

Since Twitter started implementing better spam controls last year, however, the number of spam messages on the service has gone down dramatically. According to the latest data, the percentage of spam tweets per day is now down to under 1%.
