Twitter turns tables on tweetdeckers

I love Twitter! I get much of my news from Twitter; it’s fast-paced; it’s short word count allows creativity and wit; now there is one more reason to love Twitter. Twitter has suspended accounts that spammed or stole other peoples Tweets. Some of these thieves had millions of followers, which is just crazy. Is this a big deal? Well yes. Authors, comedians, journalists and people like you and me had work stolen and other people made money from it. And that’s not cool. It remains to be seen if social media is gaining a social conscience but cleaning house like this is making it look that way.
