While checking for spam activities, TwitChuck runs some validations in background and then it flags that particular test case as passed or failed, based on which the scoring is done and spammers are identified.
Some of the validations done are:
check for user participation in conversation and community talk
age of Twitter account and online activity rate
friend-follower ratio
message update percentage, etc.
TwitChuck also maintains database of valid tweeps and flags them as “user validated”.
