Is Your Mobile Phone Network Sending You Spam?

Spam (noun). Unsolicited or undesired messages sent electronically, typically to a large number of users, for the purposes of advertising, phishing, spreading malware, etc.

Does the definition above apply to the text messages Nigerian telcos send to subscribers as a way of ‘hawking’ ringback tones, romance tips and other so-called value-added services? Well, one irritated tweeter thinks so.
