Twitter is struggling to clear out spam-tweets hawking garcinia extract. Compromised accounts and spambots want you to know it will make your “weights” drop faster than any diet.
Holy hell what is with the garcinia extract spambots today *prepares for additional deluge*

If I really wanted to blow up the Twitter, I would've called my new record "Garcinia".

But don’t worry, there’s no need to take it personally … or is there?

Could the garcinia spam actually have weight loss benefits?
Happy to hear so many of you have lost weight with Garcinia Corbonglia, or something. My new exercise routine is deleting your hacked tweets

What's funny is that all the Spammers tweeting "lose weight" are actually working. Hitting the Report for Spam button burns calories right?

Just in case you’re tempted to try out this magical weight loss elixir:
Wikipedia on garcinia weight-loss pills: "may…destroy testicles after prolonged use." So there's a few ounces of weight loss right there.
