Beware of Twitter offering you a Google job

A spammy Twitter account is targeting Twitter users trying to get them to click on a link which suggests they could find a job at Google there.

At The Next Web they first noticed the tweets which are sent out from different account, all heading to the same website, ajobwithgoogle.com. This site however is full of malware.

Apparently the spammers have got a big list of twitternames they are spamming alphabetically. They simply adress (@searchcowboys for example) the different users and sent them a tweet “Have you heard about Google taking in workers online? I read it at www.ajobwithgoogle.com Very Interesting!”.

It also looks like they are using the API but it doesn't look like they are using the leak which Dave Naylor discovered last week.

It's not clear if the spammers have been 'caught'already since they keep on registering new account. Kudos anyway for the guys at The Next Web for noticing this.
