Websense said that when Twitter launched it took a little while before it was targeted by spammers. However, in an indictment of how rapidly spammers are learning to abuse social networks, it took only two days before they started to hit Google Buzz.

“It’s worrying that spammers have an improved knowledge of social networks these days that allows them to hit new services like Google Buzz so rapidly,” said Carl Leonard, security research manager at Websense.
