Twitter Spam Requests

Post by andrew850 » Tue Jan 06, 2015 8:11 pm

Does anyone have an effective way of combating the incessant copy and paste Twitter requests from people who obviously are not listeners? I'm looking for a faster way to block them and report them as spam than going through them one by one.

For instance:

@bossonradio: @MIX100Denver I would love to hear @fifthharmony’s new single, "Sledgehammer"! Could you guys play that song? is so amazing. Thank you.

Look familiar? We've received thousands of this same exact tweet. Hard to believe thousands of people or even bots would copy and paste the same awful punctuation on purpose. Is it possible to mass block anyone using this exact text? Or do you know of another deterrent?

You could block all of them. That's about it.

Twitter is a mess. I know a lot of consultant types would have a heart attack at this, but I don't think it's all that important.
