How to Fight Twitter Spam

Frustrated with Twitter spam clogging your reading list? Turn your account housecleaning into a game with Later, Spam.

Later, Spam is a new Twitter app that lets you fight spam and earn points for spotting fake Twitter feeds in your stream. The app also keeps track of how many spam accounts you have destroyed with a simple points system. Developer Andre Torrez was frustrated by the lack of spam fighting games and built the new app.

Here’s more from AllTwitter: “If you’ve got a bit of vigilante blood in you, this app is perfect. You will not only be cleaning house, making Twitter safer and less cluttered for other users, but you’ll also get points while doing it – and anyone who’s played Farmville or who watches their follower tally like a hawk knows how satisfying points can be.”
