Jenny Chiu wants to keep up with you on Twitter

Programmer In Training spake unto us the following wisdom:
> Seriously, lets get a rule going that blocks these.

This was the first twitter spam I'd seen, and I put a rule in before
you sent this.  You doubled the noise.

I'm tripling it, but only to prevent future annoying "me too"s.  I
expect that no one will reply to this message.

We occasionally get leaks even from blocked services (e.g., a while
back LinkedIn changed how they sent emails), but I try to get on them
quickly.  There's no need to spam hundreds of people telling them you
don't appreciate receiving spam that none of them appreciated
receiving, either.  :-P
