Okay, it looks like I jumped on the Tweetback bandwagon a little early. In the last few days, one of the blogs I installed the TweetBacks WordPress plug-in on received over 1500 spam tweetbacks. I was forced to delete the plug-in for now. I also had it installed on this blog, but did not receive a spam attack here for some odd reason (lower PR/traffic on this blog, perhaps?). Anyway, I’ve now installed TweetSuite, which at this point doesn’t seem to be as susceptible to Tweetback Spam. It’s been a while since WordPress spam was a serious problem because of plug-ins like Askimet that do such a great job of blocking comment spam. It’s easy to forget that the spammers are almost always two steps ahead of any new technology. Hopefully, TweetSuite will be a better solution.
