In my continuing saga of pointing out Twitter follow spammers, today’s follow spammer is @StreetKingEnt. Like our previous Twitter follow spammers, this one has thousands of followers: 47839 followers to be exact. He follows 48054 people, or did when he followed one of the three Fan History accounts he followed.
Unsurprising: He didn’t add any of the accounts he followed to lists. He’s never going to read any of these accounts because two haven’t tweeted in at least six months. The other one he followed has been busy tweeting about the problems of Twitter follow spammers. He’s not selective. He’s just gaming the system for autofollows to improve his follow count. He’s never RTed fanhistory, never mentioned us, is never going to interact with us, isn’t offering content that we’re going to read, etc. All he needs is those two dead accounts to have autofollow on and he wins.
Twitter needs to take action to stop this follow spam. If you have over 2,000 followers, Twitter needs to ban you from following people first.
