If you know for certain that there is something suspicious about the tweet you can also flag the media by using the link shown in the screenshot below in the hope it may reduce the chance other users see and click the tweet link. I've got no idea if Twitter actually makes use of this feature for identifying spam.

The other item identified in the creators improving KittenAuth post was that the bots would take screenshots of the CAPTCHA and a human would enter the relevant code which was passed back to the bot. The Yahoo patent timing element would likely make this process much harder or atleast require more resources and make the site less attractive to spammers.
Watch the future of CAPTCHAIf you want to watch the video of the likely spam benefits of emergence images and how algorithmic trackers struggle to capture anything more than garbage. This makes it possible for the same image or video used more than once as slight elements such as colours, size and length could trick bots.
I have removed a Google news link and a link to a forum FlyerTalk for visual purposes. But what about the remaining results and why do they all look similar? I have included the graphic of who provides the content and we can see the results are dominated by Mozo who appear to power the automated and duplicate content that is shown in the results. The final result is a Naked Communications run finance website likely operated on behalf of a client.The Mozo-powered results are purely automated results with the only difference being the website name dynamically inserted into the page title and meta description. The results look like spam and do not appear to provide a quality response to users.To show what I mean by automated/duplicate content for the Mozo-powered product I have included the pages shown above. The only slight difference between each of the pages is the website template being used with all using the same on site text content, on site images and even layout. This is not quality content this is lazy automated results spamming the search results!
What about OMG Fairfax?So lets compare the search results from OMG Fairfax and why they are similar websites why their results are better quality and more relevant. Comparing Banks.com.au and CreditCards.com.au both while the content is similar I can clearly see while the text is similar they have ensured that the page titles and meta descriptions are unique but still relevant to the search result.
