Hashed ID's to prevent abuse of users and data mining

We have noticed a number of bots accessing our site and then publishing content onto Twitter and other platforms, sometimes this appears to be used to populate their Twitter account. 

UNA relies on sequential ID for user accounts, posts, updates and almost all content, this makes it extremely easy for someone to create a bot to mine content. 

In the early days of Facebook they struggled with the same problem. 


Is it possible to for the UNA development team to consider updating the ID value to a hash value or similar?
