A Twitter Follower Has A Link in his Profile (Need WOT to Test)

Post by Satchman » Mon Apr 11, 2016 12:15 pm

Dear WOT,

A Twitter follower of my account has this link in his user profile:

hxxps://t.co/KWPTNXaHvv

Along with supposed interesting facts about unusual things. I need this link virtualized and tested to find out if this is a spammer or a legitimate URL, so that I can evaluate whether or not to block the account.

What is at that link?

It's not legit. Leads to;

hxxp://www.antiandroid007.wapka.mobi/index.xhtml

Which leads to adware etc

You might find hxxp://untiny.me useful. Usually if I get a shortlink in a spam message, I "untiny" it and then rate it on WOT.
