Twitter spam filtering

Scoble wrote about “the beautiful noise of Twitter and FeedFriend” in a reaction to a blog entry from David Risley who complains about the noise these systems produce.

I wrote about the Twitter service before. Twitter is like standing in an overcrowded bar where everybody is talking loudly, not listening to anybody but everybody has an opinion about something. Oops, isn’t that just like a blog!

    So what is the difference between unwanted email messages and unwanted Twitter discussion?

    Twitter is very different than a blog. On a blog, there is one opinion leader and others react to it. On Twitter, everybody is just yelling equally.

    That is exactly my point; “everybody is just yelling = spam”.
