  • @paulinepauline zurückfragen: warum, treffen, kaufen, verkaufen whatever 😉 #
  • 9 new twitter followers in less than 12 hrs. let’s see how many are spammers/scriptfollowers #
  • who is @fraufeld ? #
  • who would be subscribing an ‘oliverg_nioisy’ channel that also has bookmarks and hints wheer I commented + shared greader items? #
  • "noisy" of course 😉 #
  • @phogenkamp norwegen ist auch etwas unwegsamer #
  • left @focusonline they du what "die zeit" used to do: feed all atricles at once … #
  • interesting, close to no twitterspammers in the new twitter followers, just asymmertries… #
  • @muhh the web interface is in pseudo-german, too. partly… #
  • will anyone pay the normal fee for @next08 ? 😉 #
  • @thomas_j *g* #
  • moving feeds from jaiku to friendfeed #
  • jaiku does not want me to remove feeeds and produces errors #
  • entering feeds to friendfeed is really smooth #
  • oops, my friedfeed was not public: friendfeed.com/oliverg #
  • incredible: etch-a-sketch artist: www.etcha.net/images/buildings/taj.jpg and www.etcha.net/buildings.html #
  • spokeo spokeo.com seems to be another jaiku/friendfeed, oh well 😉 #
  • wow, friedfeed was smooth, spoeko is… urgs, magic. #
  • aaahhhh incredible, sorry. spokeo goes through your adressbook and adds ALL your contacts to a friendfeedlike thingy. even web 0.8 types. #
  • ookey, one prob with spokeo is that I cannot gibt it other e-mail adreses of mine. #
  • ah but I can import my twitter networks (and others, I suppose) #
  • xing has a new social software grouip every 2 days. would it not make mopre sense to do several forums in one group? #
  • @luebue beter usability? more contacts? better external tool? I keep some stuff on jauku and feed it from there #
  • @luebue I used just to feed 1 masterfeed from jaiku 2 ff, that makes likkte sense as it makes ALL jaiku #
  • @luebue also jaiku suffers from the google effect: now it is just one small thing in the googleverse and stagnates. #
  • @robgreen mir war nicht klar, dass der mit meinem absender einlädt. Aber spokeo ist ziemlich cool, sieh es dir an 😉 musst ja niemand ei … #
  • @tobitobsen it has not as many features as ff but it’s ‘workings’ are far cooler. it detects social activity of your complete adressbook. #
  • @robgreen das sah aus wie ein normaler gmailabgleich. #
  • @robgreen hey you are twittering, what’s up? #
  • @all @having dinner (bread butter, sausage, cheese ) #
  • @thomas_j Ach ja ein Kinderfoto in DER Art hätte ich auch noch. Ggf. auch als Indianetr oder Rinaldo Rinaldini 😉 #

Twitterspam

I just started tagging twitterspammers.

http://del.icio.us/OliverG/twitterspammer

Why?

In general I think the net is something that does not connect computers but people, persons, individuals.

It is a world of ends.

This is also the basis of netiquette.

Netiquette takes care of several points

– be polite

– respect others

– don’t send stuff other people do not want to see (noise)

– send stuff in a way that makes sense

Twitter is powerful tool to communicate with people.

Some people use it in a way that I find abusive:

They follow masses of people (usually 1000+, sometimes as many as 5.000 or I think I have seen 15.000 or even 50.000) in the hope that some of those follow them back. Then they spread their messages (or just provoke clicks to their page URL) and URLs to the networks of those who follow them.

I consider this ‘noise’ in an otherwise useful channel.

I find twitter extremely useful. I helped people in Twitter, I was helped, I got freelance jobs through twitter even. People who abuse it spoil this channel and I am not content with another ‘social channel’ being spammed.

Usenet was spammed, e-mail was spammed, Blogs and wikis are spammed and now Twitter.

I keep hearing from peple who are irritated at the persons following them. Not because they don’t know them but because their profiles are weird: They follow many and are followed by few.

Communication on the net is best, when it is as symmetrical as possible. Following 1000+ people that you know nothing about, amkes little sense. (OK, Robert Scoble follows all who follows him and seems to be a speed reader, this is great.)

Actually I tag twitterspammers because this is the only way to give them a second chance: I can check later if they provide useful information – then I can still follow them.

I am also working with someone to provide tools to filter twitterspammers from your already big reservoir of followed people.

And I am interested to hear your thoughts on the matter, of course.

Update: Minor typo fixed, and: soil -> spoil,
