This type of spam has always been on twitter for a long time but from time to time experts keep on alerting the users. In this post we will be telling you about an IQ spam on twitter these days.
Now, the name itself tells you that is something related to IQ. Direct messages spams are like the notifications which are received to the other users when their friends takes that IQ test mentioned in the link. As soon as you click that link, all of your friends in the friend list receive a direct message which consists of the link of that IQ test and then asks them to take a test. Now, you will not know that when you send those messages as these direct messages will be sent to your friends without any prior notification.
Generally we blindly click on these link without even thinking that what the worst can it do? It really annoys the users which are under your friend list. Just take an example that if 100 friends are in your friend list and then 20 of them clicked that link then 20 Direct Messages in a day.
