@ultimape @sargoth the other thing I missed from the article is how every so often those accounts with collection of cute cat pictures and millions of followers are sold for advertising companies, where they quickly spread some ads before people realize what was going on. Twitter is so guilty of this since you can change not just your display name, but also your handle.


@uint8_t yeah, that sound about right. I'll admit to skimping on the details re what happens to big accounts in the interest of keeping things imaginably short
