SocialToo Launches Anti-Virus Solution for Twitter

A worm is propagating through Twitter direct messages (DMs) trying to trick unsuspecting members into thinking it?s a legitimate message from a friend. SocialToo has a solution for that and is launching automatic anti-virus solutions for Twitter and other social networks.

Starting now, as part of a new premium service the company is offering, anyone who goes to SocialToo and checks the "Send SocialToo DM e-mails" box will no longer receive malicious DMs we detect as rampant on Twitter, as we will be stopping them at their source. For instance, the "hey. i make $300-500 a day online. this website showed me how" DMs that have been flooding the network over the last few days will automatically be deleted from your Twitter DM box and reported to Twitter?s @spam account on users'behalf. Also, the "rofl, this you on here?" DMs will never show up.

Here?s what users need to do for it to be most effective:

- Click "Sign in With Twitter" on SocialToo.com. Click on the Preferences tab and check the box "Send SocialToo DM e-mails".
- Go to the "Settings" link in the upper-right hand corner of Twitter. Click on the "Notices" tab, and uncheck the "Direct Text E-mails" option.
- Go to the Devices tab and turn off device notifications.
Once users have done all of the above, SocialToo will now be responsible for notifying them of new DMs.

This new automatic virus detection is free until November 1st for all SocialToo users.
