Disclaimer:  This might be common knowledge to Twitter users.  I just use it to laugh at Sarah Palin's incoherent tweets.

Has anyone else noticed that spammers are linking to their spam posts from various forums on Twitter?  I just noticed it today when trying to find if caos has a twitter page.  Anyway, it makes a bit more sense to me now why they would go through so much hassle to make a post on a forum that is viewed by relatively few people.

I find it funny spammers try to do that too.  Google has, for a long time, had algorithms that can defeat that kind of "SEO".
