Twitter has reported success with its BotMaker spam-prevention system. Because Twitter operates in real time, BotMaker is designed to work fast to eliminate spammers. Its main goals are to bar spam accounts from being created, to reduce the time they spend on Twitter if they do show up, and to reduce Twitter's reaction time in responding to spammer workarounds that bypass its protection systems. Since launching BotMaker about six months ago, Twitter has seen a 40 percent reduction in its spam tracker, the company said.

Go figure... I got this message from Twitter when I tried to send out a Tweet to someone:

This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can't complete this action right now. Please try again later.

Maybe they went too far ;)
