Over the past couple of days Twitter rolled out its most recent update, which is the ability to send a DM to anyone - even if you don't already follow them. And you would expect with *any* type of change, people moan... and I'm quite dumbfounded as to why people are moaning about it?

Automated spam is wild now-a-days on the internet and if you run your own website, you'll know that there's many methods you can use when you encouter spam to deter it.
