Twitter has cut spam on the site to under one per cent of messages, it claimed today.
In a blog post, Twitter chief scientist Abdur Chowdhury said spam could range from "insidious to annoying".
"Posting harmful links to phishing or malware sites, repeatedly posting duplicate tweets, and aggressively following and un-following accounts to attract attention are just a few examples of spam on Twitter," he explained.
"While the battle will never be over, we're doing well on the front lines," he added.
Chowdhury asked users to help out by making use of spam reporting links and alerting the team via the @spam page.
