Donald Trump, Twitter spam and affiliate marketing

Trump-trump-trump

If you deal in online marketing or the media in general, then you'll probably be familiar with The Trump Network,  owned by business icon (and face of the US 'Apprentice' show) Donald Trump.

The Trump Network is currently making a foray into affiliate marketing, pop along to the campaign's homepage and you'll see a short video from Mr.Trump, explaining how his affiliate program can benefit anyone financially, up to and including multi-millionaires like himself.

The network itself wasn't what initially caught my eye however. Instead, what piqued my curiosity was the way in which the network is being promoted across the Twittersphere. 

While there's no reason to assume that Trump or his company are directly behind it, the Trump Network does have a number of seemingly automated feeds out there promoting the business, a practice which indicates a fundamental misunderstanding of the medium.
