I'm hoping you guys could shed some light on something which is baffling me. The company I work for has a website based product in the US (product.com) and we're launching a product.co.uk version soon. Someone out there is tweeting from several different Twitter accounts something that looks like this:
twittername Fake Name
Some Celebrity exposed ...
sub.domain.com/fake_url_with_you guess what...
When you click on the link it 302's to my company's product.co.uk site.
Why would someone want to do this? My fear is that they're trying to get links to their domain while putting all the risk on us in case a penalty ensues.
Is there any way to combat this?
Thanks in advance.
