In this poster we report our study on the microblog spammers with samples attracted by 50 honeyspots from two popular Chinese microblogging networks: Sina Weibo (, and Ten cent Weibo ( in seven months. We studied their features such as social information, activity, account age and spamming strategy. Several distinguishing characteristics of spammers on these two social network communities are observed, which can be helpful to the further study on automatic detection of microblog spammers. To our best knowledge our work is the first of its kind on the analysis of features of Chinese micloblog spammers.
