    Hi Al & Sketter,
    How does Twitter define spam? To me, it is sending multiple tweets on the same subject in a short time. I’m currently getting innundated with offers from Trumpettes (my term for those who pushing Trump Ntwrks.) The ones that are bothering me are those who think they should send multiple tweets within a few minutes. I’m talking 4 or 5 tweets within 7 minutes or less. One message would have been fine, but this was overkill.

  • Hi Betty~

    Thanks for the comment.

    The best place to get your answer is @spam.
    You can follow them and then Direct MEssage or send an @Reply to them.
    You can also report spam there as well.

    This will help answer specific around spam.

    Typically spam is considered when theres an unwanted solicitation or promotional piece
    sent to a party that did not ask for it. If you have a problem with someone, simply unfollow
    or block them if you wish to no longer receive their tweets.
