New Twitter spam-bomb offers A Job With Google

Twitter spamTwitter has just become inundated with spam accounts promoting a site called ajobwithgoogle.com. We highly recommend you DON’T visit that site.

A large number of tweets are being generated by new accounts, usually following no-one, but with a handful of followers. Each one is tweeting multiple @ replies to other users reading “Have you heard about Google taking in workers online? I read it at www.ajobwithgoogle.com Very Interesting!”. The sheer number of these tweets right now is causing ‘ajobwithgoogle’ to trend highly.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Stay safe out there – don’t click that link. We’ll bring you more when we have it.

UPDATE: The tweets are still coming through – they all have identical Location, Web and Bio fields in their profiles but with different real names. Interestingly, whoever’s behind this is tweeting to users alphabetically. Having gone through a large number of usernames beginning with ‘A’, they’re now onto the ‘B’s. Fingers crossed Twitter gets around to shutting this whole caper down shortly.
