    Vitaly is persistent. Seems like he's having a good time with all the attention he gets.

    I don't get it, what's the point of referral spam?

    The referral path is his Twitter page. People who monitor GA will find it and visit his Twitter page. He does this at a mass scale though and usually promotes his websites.

    He has a whopping 2 followers on Twitter. It doesn't appear to be the most effective way of spamming to say the least.

    I have this spam in my analytics. It's very annoying. I don't know why Google won't patch this exploit.

    I have 4 of these spam things showing up in my sessions/languages list. Here I was thinking that people actually gave a crap about my site. Turns out it was this Vitaly guy all along. What a shitlord, lol.
