Twitter Starts Blacklisting Spammers

You know you’ve made it as a communications medium when you start attracting spammers. On Twitter, the problem is getting bad enough that the service is starting to blacklist people who spam other members. There is already an unofficial site called The Twitter Blacklist that lists 329 known spammers on the service. . .

And, I might add, The Twitter Backlist is powered by Perl. Go, Twitter!
