There's an awful lot of people waking up today to find this view greeting them in their Twitter followers list:

Clicking into any of the profiles reveals them to be entirely blank - there are no Twitter messages posted on any of them. There is some text poking out from the profile picture, however:

Pasting text messages promoting IM webcam bots in the profile image (instead of lots of fake Twitter messages posted all over the place) seems to be the latest way to try and avoid the "obvious spammer banhammer".

I don't think it's going to work...
