Hiyaz,

Just wanted to warn you that there's a There's a bit of Twitter Spam going about, not sure if it's happened to you but if you get a message that someone is "following" you by email - be sure to check their profile before you "follow" them back (unless you know them of course).

I've got messages that someone is following me and they've got fairly dubious messages in their profile.

They can also follow you without needing approval, so it's worth sometimes checking your list of followers and Blocking those with dubious messages, especially if you use Twitter for professional reasons.

Thanks,

Shane
