Is Twitter at risk of being overtaken by Spam?

Like everyone else on Twitter I am sure you are being nudged by people following you all day. Is Twitter at risk of being overtaken by Spam?  I received a regular email telling me that someone I had not heard of was following me. If you clicked through on the name, you come directly to an advertisement. I suddenly thought, is this what is going to happen to Twitter? Is our existential patter about to be overtaken by unsavoury advertisements?
