Making a honeypot on Twitter to catch spambots is always surreal. Think about it for a second. I’m effectively walking down the main street of town screaming out random words with a gun in my hand.

“Jihad! Obama! SEO! Ranking! Google! Taliban! Jesus!”.
Finally somebody leaps out of the crowd saying, “I really like the cut of your jib, friend! I wish to hear more about this!”

I shoot them in the face.
