- This profile photo, while different, is actually of the person who is doing the tweeting. He also highlights in this photo the topics he is tweeting about thereby lending further credibility to the account.
- n Another good sign, his Twitter bio is filled out with keywords to his industry, links to his website and has his geographic location specified.
- Here we can see that followers of mine are following him as well. While you can’t endorse someone on Twitter, seeing that we have mutual connections is another sign of authenticity.
- Here we see the tweets he has sent are related to the topics in his bio. If we saw a bunch of unrelated information, or sales pitches here, it would be a sign we should block this person. The content looks legit so he is good to go!
- While this profile, by coincidence, shows her in workout clothes as well there is nothing else in the profile to suggest its connected to anything healthy. For some reason, most Twitter spam accounts choose photos of women in revealing attire as their profile photos.
- We can pretty much stop and block this account by looking at the bio. Words referencing “growing followers for $5” in bios are also common in spammers.
- At the time of this image, the spam account had spam-tweeted more than 3000 times but has 170ish followers. Another bad sign that leads us to the next point.
- Looking at their sent tweets shows more spam. There were a dozen more tweets like this promising social media audience growth before this one. As you can see in the video we are now reaching for the report and block function.
It may take a couple of minutes every day or so but we urge you to pay attention to the quality of the followers in your audience. If you need help with this, feel free to contact us any time!
