An open letter to Twitter

  Free photos for websites -

Dear @Twitter,

I love you. I love your service.

But you know what I don't love about you?

All the fucking spambots.

It seems like I can't post an update without having some spambot "follow" me.

Seriously, it's to the point that I hesitate updating because I know I'll have to go and block one or two of these bots.

I know enough about tech to know that this has to be some sort of automated process.

I beg you, please find a way to stop this shit from happening. Add a CAPTCHA requirement to follow people. Don't allow following via the API. Limit the amount of follows that people can do an hour.

Just do something.
