Spam Demon Sends Out Dirty Twitter Messages

banner-2.jpg Unless journos in this town are turning wildly inappropriate, Twitter is involuntarily sending out porn-laden messages to people’s private inboxes.

I’ve received several such messages from political types and scribes around town. Others on Twitter are warning their fan clubs that it’s happening, trying to pre-apologize before it reaches a recipient.

Here’s a sampling of what’s being sent out (To protect the innocent, I’m not attaching names to the quotes considering there’s no way they sent them intentionally and they are known names around town):

1. “hey, i’ve been having better sex and longer with this here.”

2. “hi, i’m 24/female/horny… i have to get off here but message me on my windows live messenger name BLANK@hotmail.com.”
