How to test spam reporting?


I want to invoke the REST API from my iOS app, but only to test that it works, ie I don’t want to actually report spam. Is there a way to do that? Thanks


It may be worth creating a test twitter account for this: Remember that report_spam will also block the user.

So if you create a @bootonik_spam account, and POST users/report_spam with your access token, @bootonik_spam should appear blocked to you (check in the web interface or with )


I generally do a search for “iph0ne” or “v1agra” and find a bunch of spam accounts to test on.
