The Twitter "keyword" widget
can I block p----- spammers from it?

A couple of months ago I put a Twitter "keyword" widget on my site that will post Tweets on the theme of my site using the keyword I specify. Unfortunately there's this one particularly obnoxious p----- spammer who also uses that same keyword in all his Tweets, probably just to get views from non-p----- sites like mine.

I was just wondering if it's possible to block this jerk from the widget by tweaking the code, and if anyone would happen to know how to do it. Or am I just out of luck?

(If this is a common question sorry about that, I usually follow other areas of WW).

There is something called "Twittblock" never used it, do not even know how legit the tool is!
Let see if anyone has a better suggestion.
