What's up with these twitter followers?
So a few days ago; I decided to finally give twitter another go; as all our news comes from there anyways. I hate twitter in general and like others am deeply suspicious of it.

So I log in one my junk emails; I and clicked on follow a few of those on 'the right'; maybe 5-6 people.

So now two or three days later I see notifications popped up; apparently a few people are now following me. Mind you I have never posted on Twitter. Likely never will.

Who followed me? All three who followed me are surprisingly displaying reasonably young, attractive thin females photos (and female named identities). One is chinese; others 'american' but one on a beach; one in skimpy dress.

Note: I have no picture on my id; in fact it could be a challenge from my account name that I am a guy.

Seems likely literal honeypots attached to my account immediately. What's the goal here? Is this happening to everyone on Twitter?

I am naive; I know this may be simply some sort of prostitutes trying to find people to connect with; might not be females at all. Might literally be some scheme to track or grab data of mine. But WTH. I am still surprised by this as it has never happened on another site. Not ever.
