More Twitter Spam Aimed at Writers

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett


They're back! Faster than you can block them, apparently.

Yes, I'm talking about the writing jobs spammers. I just blocked about ten twenty accounts a few minutes ago. The latest spam notes they're hiring bloggers. Don't bother to click just block and report for spam.

Who are they? The spam refers to a site called Real Writing Jobs dot com. (Why yes, I'm not linking.) Writer Beware has a good article on these folks.

It should go without saying that Yog's Law applies - in spades. Do NOT pay for leads on freelance writing gigs - especially when there are sites that offer them for free. Check the Writer Beware link above.

Be careful out there.
