Twitter Reveals New Service to Stop Spam

In an effort to detect and prevent spam and abuse on Twitter, the company’s Trust and Safety team announced today it has launched a new service to protect its users. The new service will allow the company to detect, intercept and prevent the spread of bad links across all of Twitter.

The popular micro-blogging service has focused their efforts on Direct Messages and email notifications about Direct Messages because, according to the company, that is where most of the attacks occur. According to the announcement, the service also works even if a bad link is already sent out in an email notification and a user clicks on it.
