Email Harvesting making it a threat to your online security and
privacy . Well even I was shocked to learn this at the first place
when I learnt how simple it was !!!
Social Networking site Twitter has this great feature of searching
twitter for the latest twitter updates at http://search.twitter.com/
Just go to this twitter search page , enter your search keyword and
there you have the latest tweets on twitter regarding the keyword
you have searched .
Spammers use the same technique for Email Harvesting .In your
twitter search box type in @gmail.com OR @yahoo.com OR
the keyword mail me at and you can get the list of Email address
in your twitter search page . People tweeting usually have this bad
habit of leaving their email address in their tweets while tweeting and
this eventually becomes a threat to their online privacy .Email Harvetsers
can write a simple program that runs every X seconds fetching them
new email address . So the next time you leave your Email address
online in Twitter or any of the Web directories ,get ready to be the
target of the spammers .
