Ban pornbots from following and spamming users on Twitter

    1. Petition by

      Tabitha Fung

In the past few weeks more and more pornbots have been spamming users on Twitter. They are a nuisance and make life a misery. Not only that, there isn't an age restriction for users of Twitter which means children have access to, and are using it leaving them in a vulnerable position to being targetted by pornbots. Children don't have the maturuity or resources to deal with these spammers in a sensible way and which could lead them to viewing content that they shouldn't.

We want pornbots banned from this social networking and micro blogging site to reduced the harassment of users and to also protect the younger members of Twiitter.

      Pornbots harrass users and send out viruses via their links.

      Twitter needs to do a LOT more to fight against all forms of spam. I've seen so many trending topics overrun by spambots that it wouldn't surprise me if the majority of "users" are not real people.

      I understand that there are limits to what Twitter can do, and we need to help by reporting spam when we see it. But they are not doing enough.
