So this afternoon I got an email that I had changed the email address associated with my Twitter account.
It was great to get the email, except I hadn’t changed my information. And I couldn’t log in after that. Because this super talented hacker had no job/no life/nothing better to do with their day.
I’ve reported the spammer on a few different Twitter accounts and I alerted Twitter that I couldn’t access my account, so it should be sorted out soon. And in the meantime, I’ve changed every one of my passwords, so at the very least, this waste of life has sparked a beef-up in personal security. And my own personal hacker is in the process of trying to undo this mess.
It’s great knowing people who know techie stuff.
So this is a quick suggestion: take 20 minutes and change all your passwords, preferable not to the same thing. Keep track of them with one of the many password keeper apps, or just write them down. Just make sure your accounts are safe, dudes.
And if you follow me on Twitter, pay no attention to anything that pops up that doesn’t look like it came from me.
Have any of you ever had your Twitter account hacked? What did you do to fix it?
