    You know what! Once I got surprised to see an ad on my twitter profile. I never used any advertising stuff for my twitter. But dont know how it got there on the app list. Anyways I just revoked the access… But still in a confusion how it crept in! Currently I use only trusted services like Tweetmeme, disqus, facebook, twitterfeed, tweetdeck etc…

    One of these Twitter apps spammed all my new followers with a direct message saying “I laughed so hard when I saw this about you lol **spammy link**” I was so annoyed I revoked access from all apps – I think it was one of the “unfollow” type apps…
