What's the point?

Today I had another random person follow me on Twitter.

Obviously intrigued, I clicked on her profile page to see what she was about and got a profile where her wallpaper was a scantily clad lady (alarms go off). She's followed 1,848 people and is being followed by a grand total of...66 people (and counting, hopefully).

Now, I don't want to devolve into a discussion about the ethics of adding people in Twitter, so at this point, I'll say the next thing that caught my eye was that her tweets were actually links to various blogs:

"Hey, what do you think of [########.blogspot.com]?"

"I read this [#### blog link], what's your opinion?"

Of course, being an impulsive link-clicker, I clicked on those links and where did that land me? To pages like this and this. Sorry, did I just waste your time too?

@ky: Hahaha!
@blogjunkie: Not all. I check them out. If it's a spammer like HilaryClinton04, then of course not. Hey, if you add me on Twitter, I'm pretty sure i'd add you. See you at Barcamp.
