A lot of people have been asking me how to block porn and spam on Twitter.

Porn and spam are pockmarks on our society and the internet. Twitter has its fair share of both. To really make it annoying, spammers and porn sites will follow you on Twitter in an effort to get you to follow them back.


The good news – Twitter is 100 percent opt in. You don’t have to follow anyone. In fact, Twitter gives you the ability to block others from following you.

I would recommend that you begin blocking Twitter followers who are obviously on the service to spam you.

First, you will disassociate yourself from these scum. The last thing you need is a new client or prospect checking out who is following you and they discover a bunch of porn sites. Second, if enough people block a certain account, Twitter will usually remove the user from the service.
