    My Twitter account has been inundated with spam and in the Arabic language. The more I try to filter this Arabic spam it seems the more I get. This spam is taking over my account. I have tweaked my settings and have contact Twitter and still that spam in Arabic keeps coming.

    I think it is time to abandon my Twitter account. Not only am I having to deal with this spam in a foreign language and I am losing allot of people who were following me!

    I have reported this spam to Twitter with no response from them. It just keeps coming!

    There is feature in Twitter's settings where you can chose a language but this does not work!

    Is anyone experiencing this?

    Have any of you found a way to filter out foreign languages that work?

    That's like saying, "The language is in Korean" so it must be North Korea that's hacking my account in order to use to recruit terrorist.

    I don't really understand your story.
    You mean the spam is coming from you? Like they hacked your account?
    Or are you getting spam from other accounts?

    @neonskull I can't say it's all spam, but I can tell you I don't like it and I cannot remove it!
    @Matt88 perhaps I have gone to far with my Title regarding ISIS. It is not a far reach to believe that they could be making money by spamming Twitter. But they could also be doing this to choke the revenue that Twitter makes. The thing is I have no way of stopping this! WTF!

    I wonder what software they use, all my twitter money making methods are pretty much dead since Tweet attacks went out of business.

    dude you can translate it partially with google or bing, mostly they're just spam. some speak about religion but nothing serious or extreme.

    Then use Twitter Money Bot, it is very similar to old tweet attacks but still a unique tool.

    Whether it is spam or not is redundant. It's Arabic and I don't like it. I tagged this thread with ISIS because I wanted to get some feedback and how to rid of this crap!

    Sorry for confusing some of you.

    That's what most say, but it is ridiculous. ISIS consists of arabs atmost and enjoys wide support in the arab world. If they don't want to be linked with it they'd get rid of it.
