Marcel Flores, Maciej Swiech and I have been working hard on our machine learning project, in which we are asking whether we can detect twitter spammer upon account creation, before they’ve made a single spammy tweet. Our results have been promising and I’m posting here a link to the project website: Ready Spam Detection in Twitter.

At the above link you’ll find our project details, approach, results, analysis, and an accompanying extended abstract in ACM format.

Also, here is a direct link to the paper itself.
