Maybe its just because I’m older than 35, but I didn’t get the “if you’re older than 35″ reference? Is he seriously suggesting that people over 35 wouldn’t be able to see the intrinsic value in getting spam off Twitter without an incredibly obvious analogy?
Kids today! In my day we had Bayesian spam filters! And we liked them!
I think he means that if you’re under 35, you won’t get the Internet Superhighway reference.
Ok, as long as I can plausibly suspect that its someone else being called stupid and not me, I’m cool with it.
Erm, I think it’s because you have to be older than 35 to remember the incessant no-littering campaigns of the ’70s and early ’80s….
Ghods, I wish they would bring those back. The litter is getting worse every year.
I would, if I knew which ones were spambots. Can someone help me out here?
The links to alleged naked pics and dubious offers of thousands of followers are you usually a tipoff.
The accounts with 3 obviously commmercial tweets – accounts following 15,000 people.
If you’re from Michigan, you can think of it as picking up ten cent deposit cans and bottles off the side of the Freeway of Love.
Came for a discussion of people discussing their enemata on twitter, leaving disappointed.
