Spam Assassin for Twitter?

Ok I’m drowning here, I’ve given up trying to manually block all the people on twitter sending me spam and I don’t think that TrueTwit is really the solution.

What we really need is a distributed system like Spam Assassin where when enough people “block” or report an account as spam that it is then flagged and block from all other participating accounts. Does something like this exist already? Is the API the limit to using something like this?

What can I do to cut down on the number of follows who are sending me spam accounts?

P.S. yes i get the irony
