Twitter Having Its 15 Minutes of Fame?

Twitter is all over the news, magazine and online articles, the talk shows, comes up in the plots of various TV shows, now Apple is rumored to be buying it. Now that Twitter has gone “Mainstream” (or more mainstream?) I get about 5 pieces of “Twitter-spam” a day. Nefarious characters that want to follow me (that I block), to companies or representatives that follow me because something about them appears in a Tweet. “So-and-so please Skype me about that,”…. and 5 mintes later 3 people with some kind of tie to Skype are following me. Does this bode well for Twitter? Is this like a sports star getting the photo on the cover of Sports Illustrated and then having a spate of hard times? I guess we’ll find out.

Learning is messy!

    I get the spam too but I rarely block people unless it’s pornographic. I don’t, however, follow them back.
