The Spammers have invaded Twitter!

I received the following e-mail notice from twitter today, notifying me someone added me as their friend:

Hi, Jesse Stay.

aruna (aruna) added you as a friend!

Check out aruna’s profile here:

http://twitter.com/aruna

You may add aruna back by clicking on the “add” link.

Best,
Twitter

If you follow the link, someone has set up a Twitter account which they post daily updates about arunaurl.com, which appears to be a lame replacement for tinyurl.com. I imagine they’re following all the latest updates on the twitter frontpage and adding users they haven’t added before. Perhaps they’re getting some competition from Twitter converting urls to tinyurl.com urls. So what do you call twitter-style Spam? Bologna?
