Upon clicking the tweeted link, I was presented with a subscribe page overlaying the interesting article. It was rigged so clicking the X did nothing.
I am certain @dragonblogger would not deliberately tweet out a link like that. He himself may have been a victim of programmed twitter spam. It happens this way: you see a neat article and want to share it with others. You hit the twitterbird icon and your tweet is dispatched. But hidden in the URL is a code that triggers a screen overlay, commanding your followers to enter their email address or otherwise subscribe to something you may not want to. A good way to lose followers!
THE SOLUTION::: Take FULL control! Instead of tweeting a link, use the material there to compose a summary or synopsis of your own! Put it on your blog or websitge or facebook page! Now you will have "original content" and you don't need to link to another site that may end up damaging your PR, Panda and Penguin, not to mention your blog or website position on Google!
