In the last years, the widespread diffusion of Online Social Networks (OSNs) has enabled new forms of communications that make it easier for people to interact remotely. Unfortunately, one of the first consequences of such a popularity is the increasing number of malicious users who sign-up and use OSNs for non-legit activities. In this paper we focus on spam detection, and present some preliminary results of a system that aims at speeding up the creation of a large-scale annotated dataset for spam account detection on Twitter. To this aim, two different algorithms capable of capturing the spammer behaviors, i.e., to share malicious urls and recurrent contents, are exploited. Experimental results on a dataset of about 40.000 users show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
