How is my Twitter account getting spammed with 'HubPages' DM's?

    Hey,

    I just noticed that I have around 20 DM's to my twitter account from what appear to be different HubPages usernames, the messages which are exactly the same state:

    "Hey! Thanks for the follow!If you get a minute check out my HubPages profile - http://bit.ly/4RLBqcOr Blog & earn for free here - http://bit"

    How is this happening? Thanks,

    climberjames :S

        Hmmmm, it is strange, the only thing I can think of is some kind of bot that has lifted my Twitter URL from my HP profile and is sending me affiliate links to join HubPages . . . I'm not sure if this is even possible . . .
