Twitter Kit Out to Make Twitter a Spammers' Dream

Cybercriminals leveraging social media is now basically a given, especially with users' current dedication to social media (specifically on social networks). Actually, we've reported quite a few instances that prove how cybercriminals used Twitter for their operation, most especially in spamming.

Twitter is, of course, fully aware of this. Twitter users have probably even noticed some of the Web page limitations designed to hamper spammers' efforts. One of the recent developments being the implementation of Twitter's Link Service. But the cybercriminals are definitely not willing to go down without a fight.

A tool kit that can be used to send Twitter spam is currently being promoted in underground forums. The kit, aptly named "Twitter Kit," has interesting functions, which include sending messages to thousands of followers using socks5 proxy. The said functionality is especially useful in search engine optimization (SEO) projects. The tool also enables the user to search through other users' followers and to send Follow invites to them as well as to break account limits set by Twitter.
