@trumpet How does one identify a spam account?

@qub Usually lots of posts that just contain links to some sort of commercial advertising.

@trumpet Thanks, I'll report if I see something similar

@trumpet honest question, if we see something along the lines of kpop spams much like twitter would they be eligible for this?

@Crossbolt These are actual users with high volume, not automated advertising bots, so no.
