Well the sapm is driving me nuts and it isn't coming from twitter users, although the spammers may use twitter.

Someone is sending spam with the forged sender pretending to be Twitter.

This is likely spam that is coming from rented time on a bot network, and due to the volume that is being hit and such growth in such a short amount of time, I can't see where this could be very effective....as I am sure most people just ignore it at this point.

The way my filters work on the mail server I can't really filter this stuff globally since I am worried I might delete valid twitter mail for clients so I am not sure how to handle it yet.

I may end up having to just dump any and all mail with the word twitter in the sender.

I am not sure what the send info looks like on valid twitter mail so not sure how this will affect twiter users.
