Do Twitter Scammers Have Conversations?

Posted on: October 10, 2009

I’d like to say a big thankyou to @CoureyGetsMoney for following me (3,109 Following 2,831 Followers). His bio reads:

Thanks for checking out my page im a real cool guy making 12,000 a month working from home with GDI

I suspect he’s lying about his income and about being a “real cool guy”. I also suspect he’s using auto-follow and is just trying to drive traffic to his scam. Lets check out his graph…

@coureygetsmoney's Twitter Conversation Graph

He’s not part of the conversation. Just a scammer. Spammer. Whatever. What does your graph say about you?

I love your work – it’s a really cool visualisation that I think will have lots of great uses. Thanks for doing my graph. Is it at all possible to get a better quality image at the end of the process – I ask because I’d like to use a couple of your graphs (including my own) in a presentation and it would be useful to be able to see some of the names. I guess that is also going to be important if people are going to use it in the way that you suggest.

Thanks again.
