TwitBlock.orgA sign of popularity of a service – any service – is that junk and spammy contents start being commonplace. They go from being the exception to the rule, and such has happened to Twitter – the amount of junk that is put your way is nothing short of infuriating.

That is mainly forthcoming from accounts which are not human at all, but rather computer-aided or even fully automated.

These fake accounts can lower the appeal so considerably that newcomers might be entirely turned off. That is why free tools like TweetBlock are important – they provide everybody with the means for fighting spam back without budging an inch. It features a tool for scanning followers that blocks the offending ones in one fell swoop. It does so by taking into account a plethora of behavioral issues such as the number of people who is followed, the number of tweets, the frequency of tweeting…

  • August 14, 2008 – Prevent Spam EasilyEmail Aliasing is a new way of preventing spam because it only allows sites that are approved to email your email “alias” for that site (e.g.

[email protected]). Silverfeed allows you to create aliases and easily manage email aliases for all the sites you use via the site or browser plugins. All approved emails are forwarded to your personal account so that it works with any email service; corporate, Gmail, Yahoo, etc. If you respond it goes back to Silverfeed and is sent to the recipients from your alias — so Silverfeed is a firewall protecting your personal address. In other words, the site allows you to easily filter what you want in your inbox. There is no need for you to leave your email with big companies anymore, just use your alias and control what they know about you and your email account.
