These recent days, my blog is hit by spam attack, Trackback spam. Just in few days, when I was not at home and was in Jakarta-Bogor for spending my weekend, my blog got so many spam I ever had, up to 2500 (and after few weeks, around 28.000). The Trackback itself actually is good in intention, but petty minded people use trackback spambot to raise up their web rank (which is actually NOT WORKING at all). What the heck Trackback is? what is the benefits and why it can be categorized as spam?

Today I check this home page and my Twitter status is no longer displayed. This is because Twitter is no longer give permission to access directly the RSS of my status (user timeline), and also because I protect my tweets (for new tweets). Before this, I can fetch easily the status from the RSS URL address such below.
just calling function
fetch_feed in WordPress (which uses SimplePie) and you’ll get it automatically parsed, so it is easy to reproduce the result of this RSS users timeline. But since Twitter now is using OAuth for authentication, so we need a little tinkering with code to fetch the Twitter user timeline.
