Block Twitter Spam with TweetBlocker
Last week by suggestion from our good twitter pal Alexi, we tweeted out the “Double Barrel Super Soakers”, to help fend off those that choose to spam on Twitter. Now you can arm yourself with TweetBlocker too.
“Tweetblocker is a free resource for Twitter users and application developers. Using highly advanced filtering, we catalog and rank the top spammers on Twitter, allowing users to quickly and easily find spammers.”
TweetBlocker allows you to check for any twitter users spam grade. Grades are just like grade school, A-F. A being you are clean and F indicating that you may be a “spammer”.
Additionally, you can get a personal spam report which displays a detailed ranking of all the people you follow on twitter. You can easily block twitter users you think are spammers. (TweetBlocker uses twitter oAuth for athentication)
TweetBlocker also provides an API for application developers to retrieve a twitter users grade as well as report a user as spammer.
