Annoyingly has limits for some of the spambots, they keep coming back under different handles even though they usually keep the same name (something like "order followers" in leet style). I still report & block them of course.

I also thought I had blocked all the gambling promoted ads/tweets when recently a few new ones popped up. There seems to be an endless supply of betting companies. Makes me wonder if that could cause problems for gambling addicts when they get bombarded with this stuff?
