    the cost of using a bot on twitter. he started following a friend of mines mother (i live in Australia btw) randomly and i can only assume its designed to also follow those that says something political of some nature.

    and i highly dought any political figure has time to deal with online networking that is what their staff are there for. while he may have access to it i dont think he has time to go though all the people he has had his staff get though foolish means.

    this truly is a sub par scandal.

    Seeing as 90% of the accounts that follow any user end up being porn accounts, an account sent to auto-reciprocate is going to end up following some porn. I don't really see the scandal here.

    Luckily, most of those spam accounts get shut down pretty quick.

    I think what bothers me more are Twitter accounts that aren't who they say they are. If I were to follow my Governor I would want it to be the gov, not the gov's tech savvy intern.

    Let's see drunken tweeting from our elected officials!
