Tweet viewer virus short-link attracts 15700+ clicks!

No one generally doubts the tendency of Internet users today being so desperate to check who all have checked out their profile(s) on Facebook and Twitter. With Facebook already slow in removing spam applications which claims to let users check how many times their profile has been visited, Twitter managed to block this viral URL just in a day.

With tweets like “Wow! You can see WHO VISITS your TWITTER profile. That’s cool!  🙂 “ followed by the bit.ly url, spammers did try to attract the attention of the already crazy users and they did receive some success with over 15700 clicks in just a day. Even if the bit.ly link has been blocked, the tweet virus can still use different short URL services (See where shortened URLs redirect you).
