Twitter is the best thing to happen to oversharers since the invention of the telephone. It is also a great tool for garden bloggers because you get to connect with some of your fellow garden bloggers, engage new readers, spam strangers with links to your latest blog posts and try out your comedy routine before your set at the Laugh Factory.
Unfortunately, all cool things have an element of danger. How can Twitter be dangerous? Well, for starters: take the screengrab above I just took off of Twitter moments ago. While I'm sure this garden blogger/writer isn't having any problems in that department I'm pretty sure the message is spam. Her account must have been "hacked" when she inadvertently followed a link posted by someone else whose account had been hacked.
The lesson here is to stop following links if you don't know where they lead to. Yes, even from people you know and trust. Since it seems the past few days have been a perfect breeding ground for spam on Twitter it may be a good idea to change your password.
